Did You Know?
Following the successful telecasts of Othello
(1922) and The Eagle
(1925), New York City's WJZ (Channel 7), began a weekly series of Sunday evening silent film feature presentations, shown more or less in their entirety, which aired intermittently for the next twelve months. This feature, at least the edited Kodascope Version, which would have been all that was available at that time, was initially broadcast Sunday 28 November 1948, and, like the rest of the series, aired simultaneously on sister stations WFIL (Channel 6) (Philadelphia) and freshly launched WAAM (Channel 13) (Baltimore), an innovation at the time; the following week's selection would be The Drop Kick
(1927). See more
