The Barrier 1937 Looking for a copy
14 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not actually a review as intended and I hope it will be accepted. I appeared in this movie "The Barrier" in 1937. I played the part of Molly and my screen name was Sally Martin. My name now is Sibylle Marks. I am trying to locate a copy of this movie - in any form. I have managed to obtain a copy of every other movie in which I appeared. There were five others. Jungle Princess, Keeping Company, Timothy's Quest, I Take This Woman and Killer Dog. This is the last one that would complete my collection. I was 7 years old when I made that movie and it's a wonderful remembrance to give to my grandchildren. This is being added later... I have obtained a copy. Thanks to all that helped.
