Neptune's Daughter
21 September 2005 | by (Tilton, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to learn that a portion of this film exists in two worldwide archives. I have seen 20 minutes of film footage which I purchased from one of the archives. I am in talks to get the footage from the other one.

Since originally writing this, I was lucky enough to obtain additional footage from the other archive and to date, about 26 minutes of this film has been located. Hopefully, more will be found in the future.

The surviving footage shows what a wonderful film this must have been to see in its entirety. Ms. Kellerman has a graceful quality in her swimming & diving that kind of reminds me of when I see a figure skater like Peggy Fleming or Dorothy Hamill do a skating program. However, she also has the plucky quality displayed by Mary Pickford in her many tomboyish and childlike roles.

Maybe one day more surviving footage or a surviving copy of this film in its entirety will be located. It is fortunate that some of this film exists so silent fans can see what magic the Kellerman/Herbert Brenon productions had in them.
