Any reason why you picked 1925? I go for Seven Chances (1925) because I love Buster Keaton, although I have to admit I haven't seen the film.

Heya - I've only seen two of those (believe it or not...lol), and of those two I am going to have to vote for "The Phantom of the Opera".

In the question I would say "would have won" (or "should have won"). And "if they had existed" could sound like "they" refers to the movies, so to clarify:

Which one of these Silent Films from 1925 would have won an Oscar if the Oscars had existed?

And in the title, a lower-case "the" is probably better.

Replaced the description.
I agree. Yours is so much better than mine.
The "The", is now, "the"!

I haven't seen it but pretty sure Ben-Hur would have won (and even surer Battleship Potemkin, as deserving as it is, would not have).

Was thinking the same. However Charlie Chaplin will probably get the most votes.
Phantom may have won also.
