This is one of the films that the Russian film industry saved and a copy was turned over to the Library of Congress in the latter part of 2010. This was one of ten films that have thus far be returned to The Library of Congress. According to reports in the Washington Post there may be close to 200 silents that will in time find there way back to circulation. It seems that the Russians care more about the early art of film then Hollywood has. They cared enough to preserve titles that we have not taken care of. The first ten films includes titles directed by James Cruze, George Fitmaurice, Reginald Barker, Victor Fleming, Albert Austin, Edward F. Cline and Val Paul. They feature such stars as Betty Compson, Thomas Meigham, Renee Adore, Wallace Berry, Wallace Reid, Richard Dix, Lois Wilson, Harry Carrey and Jackie Coogan! In time we may have a chance to see an important list of films that have been lost to history until now.
