WOW!!! SILENT FILMS FROM 100 YEARS AGO DISCOVERED AT RECYCLING CENTER IN DEVON

From our friends at European Film Star Postcards: Silent films from 100 years ago discovered at recycling centre--In the British town of Sidmouth in Devon, a dozen rare silent films have been discovered recently in a dumped shelf unit at a recycling centre. Film buffs Mike Grant and his daughter Rachel found the trove with films from France, Italy, India and the UK from circa 1909 to 1913. It also included the MGM-comedy The Cardboard Lover (Robert Z. Leonard, 1928), of which only one other copy is known....Here at EFSP, we love this kind of news, and to celebrate it this post is dedicated to the star of The Cardboard Lover, Marion Davies (1897-1961).   READ AND SEE MORE HERE http://filmstarpostcards.blogspot.com/2017/08/silent-films-from-100-years-ago.html
