Lost Film Found, 4 April 2005
Author: gerrythree ( from New York

The extract from the article below, from the UK Daily Telegraph, describes a film archive that had a nitrate print of The Woman Who Dared. The print was found in an aircraft hangar, not an attic.

From last paragraph below: "Other cinematic discoveries include ...the 1933 film, The Woman Who Dared, which had been presumed to be lost."

Lost Victorian films saved from destruction By Chris Hastings, Media Correspondent, Daily Telegraph (Filed: 03/04/2005) Lost film footage of the funeral of William Gladstone in 1898 and a forgotten live action adaptation of Snow White from 1910 have been saved for posterity after being found in an archive earmarked for destruction. Dozens of films which have never been seen before or were thought lost have been found in more than 600 cans of rotting nitrate film that were due to be thrown out by their owners. The archive was started by the late John Huntley, a film enthusiast who began collecting as a child and who began his professional career working as a tea boy for the film producer, Alexander Korda. Mr Huntley, who died in 2003 aged 82, worked for the British Film Institute prior to setting up his own private archive in the mid 1980s. The 600 cans of nitrate film had been stored in aircraft hangars in the south of England. Other cinematic discoveries include a British silent comedy called Why Jones Got The Sack, a cautionary tale about the merits of time-keeping which was released in 1907, and the 1933 film, The Woman Who Dared, which had been presumed to be lost.
