The Empire Strikes Back as a Silent Movie

I thought, no way would this concept work out well, but this clip from a “silent movie’d” version of Empire Strikes Back is actually pretty powerful. Something about the graininess and pacing that really works well. I would like to see more scenes converted over and I can’t help but think that “Raider of the Lost Ark” would make a wonderful candidate for this treatment.
