A misfit Earl( Visual )

2 editions published in 1912 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Bennison, a favorite star of the Betzwood Studio, plays a cowboy born in to an aristocratic British family that long ago disowned his father and mother. Sam and his adopted son Jim live the bachelor life out on the plains until they hear news of inheriting a fortune and a title in England. Returning there with some reluctance to assume his position with Jim, they are soon caught up in a plot with another relative that would put Sam out of the picture so that he can inherit all. We are treated to many comic moments in which the director and writer contrast the American and British social class divisions, and other cultural differences. With the help of a lovely lady of the estate, Sam is able to thwart a plot to poison him. Unfortunately, this is where the film abruptly ends, as the original print is not complete, the ending having been lost or damaged

The great train robbery( Visual )

1 edition published in 1903 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although it was filmed in Edison's studio in New Jersey, this film is actually the first Western ever produced and exhibited in the United States. The Great Train Robbery became an instant success when it was released in the Nickelodeon theaters of the time and contributed to the Nickelodeon's growing popularity with the American public. "Description of the first scene: Interior of Railroad Telegraph Office. Two masked robbers enter and compel the operator to set the "signal block" to stop the approaching train, also making him write a fictitious order to the engineer to take water at this station, instead of at "Red Lodge," their regular watering stop. The train comes to a standstill; conductor comes to the window, and the frightened operator delivers the order while the bandits crouch out of sight, at the same time keeping their revolvers trained on him. No sooner does the conductor leave than they fall upon the operator, bind and gag him, then hastily depart to catch the moving train." From the Edison films catalog: "This sensational and highly tragic subject will certainly make a decided hit whenever shown. In every respect we consider it absolutely the superior of any moving picture ever made. It has been posed and acted in faithful duplication of the genuine Hold Ups made famous by various outlaw bands in the far West, and only recently the East has been shocked by several crimes of the frontier order, which fact will increase the popular interest in this great Headline Attraction."

This version, made by Philadelphia's Lubin company, went so far as to remake the film virtually scene for scene, differing only in an occasional detail (a different caldendar, for example).
