Silver in a Haystack is a blog about movies that can be freely and legally downloaded from the Internet Archive (archive.org). All the movies reviewed in the blog have been selected because they are good movies, or have some other intrinsic value.
But, of course, some are better than others. Below follow the top recommendations of this blogger, in no particular order. These have been chosen not only because they are great films, but also because they have at least medium resolution, and good or better sound and picture quality. For silents, I also require a good or better soundtrack.
