This time it's 1928's "The Racket," which I think must be a gangster movie. Another silent one, I'm pretty sure.
@Alexis Do you have anything by Lotte Reiniger on your list?
(Have seen only tiny snippets myself, but heard of her)
@Anke My focus has been on Oscar nominees -- as good a place as any to start, since I'm largely pretty vague on cinema from before the 70s that doesn't have King Kong or Godzilla in it -- but there's no reason I can't take some detours.
@Alexis Only if you're interested in silhouette animation
@Alexis But she's the only filmmaker I could think of for the 1920s
@Alexis This is the one where they steal a famous tennis player's racket and which causes a chain reaction that eventually leads to the Ditadura Nacional.
