Did You Know?

The first feature photographed on panchromatic negative film, which was equally sensitive to all colors of the spectrum, unlike the earlier orthochromatic film, which rendered blue skies and blue eyes as pale white.See more »

Painfully Awful, 30 May 2014
Author: Maliejandra from United States

I always liked the Disney version of this story and since I like Will Rogers and I find it fascinating to see silent versions of more modern films I like, I made my way into the screening room at Cinevent 2012.

Our star, Will Rogers, is best known for his wit, which cannot be on display here because it is a silent. Strike one. The buildup to the reason to watch the movie, the headless horseman, was so long and dull, that I found myself nodding off several times, as were many of the people around me. Strike two. The climax came much too late and suddenly to justify watching this movie. Strike three.

The runtime on this movie is a little more than an hour, but it feels like triple that. It is painful to watch.
