Silent Film
A SILENT FILM is a film with no synchronized recorded sound , especially with no spoken dialogue . In silent films for entertainment, the dialogue is transmitted through muted gestures, mime and title cards with a written indication of the plot or key dialogue.

Pianists and organists would either play from sheet music or improvise ; an orchestra would play from sheet music
