Storyline

Richard Fleischer would gather up a few reels of early-days silent films, usually directed by D. W. Griffith, grab a film editor, write some tongue-in-cheek narrative to be spoken by Ward Wilson, chop out a few scenes, stitch them together, and come out with a new edition in RKO Radio's Flicker Flashbacks series of shorts. Just like this one. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Misidentification of the films shown
2 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spoiler if you believe the two films shown in this short are "His Desperate Deed"(1915) and "The Prospector's Daughter" (1912). TCM ran MAKE MINE MEMORIES (revised title of FLICKER FLASHBACKS) early on September 30, 2013. The heroine in both films is Blanche Sweet as stated by the narrator, but Blanche is not in either of the reported films. A check of her credits on the IMDb reveals that the first film with Harry Carey and Henry Walthall is "Broken Ways" (1913) and the second with Dorothy Bernard and Charles West is "The Goddess of Sagebrush Gulch" (1912). In any case the snippets are interesting to see movie making in comparatively primitive times; and it is interesting to see one of the early screen "goddesses" in action.
