I'm sure most if not all of these silent films fit one or more of them. Hell I'm personally not sure we need a Black & White category, but at least there's a considerable number of films there (almost 500 it seems). A category for a dozen or so movies just seems superfluous. If fact I wonder if we should set a minimum film number requirement for categories and start clearing some of the more sparse ones out. Some of them - particularly with certain directors - only have something like three or four films, which again, just seems superfluous unless we're talking about a considerably well-known/renowned director who just hasn't done a lot of films with firearms in them or something.

Just my thoughts, of course. Bah.
The most annoying category is Deceased Actor. Now we have to keep an eye out for any deaths in the entertainment industry. I remember doing a wave of them after the Oscar's death montage one year.
