If Only
15 July 2008 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

If only this gorgeous looking film can reappear intact. How could it have gone missing? It looks like a high profile enough film in its day, so it's a shame it somehow vanished.

At least we have the two trailers. I've seen one of them.

By the way, that's Ford Sterling, not Gray, in the scene with Brooks.

Many clips from rare films can be found on YouTube, which is a blessing for many of us who always hear about these films but can never find them otherwise.

Many "lost" films may only be in hiding, with perhaps one copy being in someone's collection; I can only hope that in time many longtime missing titles can reappear and be on view again. There's so much missing history from the silent days.
