Silent movies are movies that have no sound whatsoever: no music, and no talking. The silent film silence because movies with sound hadn't been invented yet. Silent movies were the first films in history. At the time, the "moving pictures", as they were called, were a new invention. Silent films were popular around the turn of the 20th century, until movies with sound started coming out, in the mid-to late-1920s.
