What about silent movies?

Also, I think you may be labouring under a misapprehension here. Most of the composers you've spoken of in the last few posts are not classical composers. They compose classical-like music, but that doesn't mean it is classical. I think you'd be hard pressed to find too many movies which rely on a completely or even partially actual classical soundtrack. The music prevalent in films these days does indeed often sound classical, but that doesn't make it classical. Williams, Jarre, Barry etc are all working in this field and you couldn't call them classical composers. If anything, they're film composers. They often use classical tropes, but they're not writing classical music.
