Lost film which means it doesn't exist...
29 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately his film doesn't exist any more--so I doubt the above comment has any validity (unless the viewer is very old and has an excellent memory).

One reel is in an archive in Sweden and that's re-edited summary so any comments on style don't reflect on the original.

There are also fragments of the battle scenes in, I believe, George Eastman House.

I find it hard to believe the other detailed summary given that this is the case. If the poster knows of an extant print they need to contact a major archive immediately as this is one of the most important and (sadly) lost films of its day.
