Siren of the Sea
31 August 2005 | by mcadeSee all my reviews

I was fortunate enough in my research of silent film to find that this short film existed in a European archive. I was able to get my hands on a copy and see it.

The photography is quite primitive when viewed now, but it serves as a promise of things to come. When it was made, for the most part only one and two reel films were being made, but in as little as four or five years, features took over much like the way the sound film took over from the silent film a decade later.

It is a shame that most of Kellerman's work is lost to us, but this short film along with a couple of her other films still exist and are available for the modern viewer. It is easy to see why she was so popular during the early years of the 20th century. She had kind of a tomboyish quality while still retaining her femininity that comes across in her acting.

Hopefully one day someone will discover that her films she made with Herbert Brenon exist in a private collection or archive and will be released to the public.
