Grawlixes and the movies; Earl Hurd, 1917

 Bobby Bumps' Fourth (Earl Hurd, 1917)

Polly wants a cracker, but the expected cracker turns out to be a firecracker.
Grawlixes appear as stars, swirls and censorded (blanked) curses.

A silent film.

Grawlixes like stars and spirals do not replace sound. (see; programming with grawlixes).
Most Grawlixes seem to have disappeared from the movies with the introduction of sound.

therefore it is likely that;

A. Grawlixes must have some relation with language
B. But not with spoken language
