Library of Congress: 75% of Silent Films Lost | Variety

A study from the Library of Congress reveals for the first time how many
feature films produced by U.S. studios during the silent film era still
exist, what condition they’re in and where they are located.

To no one’s surprise, the news is bleak. Only 14% of the 10,919 silent
films released by major studios exist in their original 35mm or other
format, according to the report, “The Survival of American Silent Feature
Films: 1912-1929.” Another 11% survive in full-length foreign versions or
on film formats of lesser image quality.
