Unknown Video presents the unseen silents (1918-1922) extracts from three silent films ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first of these rare videos is Mabel Normand's 1922 feature Suzanna, once considered lost. Of its original six reels, reels three and five are lost, but the storyline is still essentially complete. The gaps have been filled with explanatory subtitles, so the continuity of the story is uninterrupted. The second subject is the surviving footage of William S. Hart's Riddle Gawne (1918), featuring Lon Chaney as the villain. Only a little more than a reel survives, but it's fascinating footage, and it's a tantalizing look at what must have been a remarkable film. Again, explanatory subtitles have been inserted to make the storyline clear. The third subject is Harold Lloyd's 1918 one-reel comedy, A Sammy in Siberia, essentially intact. All three subjects feature an original organ score by Bob Vaughn
Stagecoach by John Ford ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1855, the Overland stage from Tonto to Lordsburg leaves town with eight people on board. In the front, sit Buck the driver and Marshal Curley Wilcox, who is riding shotgun to protect the stage from hostile Indians and from the Plummer brothers, a vicious band of outlaws. The passengers consist of Doc Josiah Boone, the town drunk; Dallas, a woman of ill repute, who, like Doc, has been banished from town; the pregnant Lucy Mallory, who is taking the stage to meet her husband, a cavalry officer, and is treated gallantly by her fellow passenger, Hatfield, a gambler; Gatewood, the town's sanctimonious banker who mouths respectability while clutching a carpet bag filled with stolen money; and Peacock, a timid whiskey drummer. Because of an Apache uprising by Geronimo, the cavalry escorts the coach to the first station at Dry Fork. Along the way, Buck stops to pick up the Ringo Kid, who has escaped from prison to seek revenge on the Plummers, who killed his family and sent him to jail on false testimony. After Curley arrests Ringo, the stage continues on to Dry Fork, where they discover that there are no troops to escort them farther. Voting to continue on alone, they reach the next stop, where their journey is delayed when Mrs. Mallory, learning that her husband has been wounded, goes into premature labor. Doc sobers up to deliver the baby, and as they await Mrs. Mallory's recovery, Dallas and Ringo fall in love and Dallas urges Ringo to escape. Ringo is on the verge of leaving when he sees Apache war signals, and the passengers hastily board the stage to make a desperate dash to Lordsburg. Just as they think the danger has passed, the Apaches attack at a dry lake bed, wounding Peacock and Buck and killing Hatfield. At the last minute, the cavalry rides to the rescue and escorts the stage to Lordsburg, where Gatewood is arrested for embezzlement. There, Curley grants Ringo his freedom so that he can avenge the murder of his family, and after gunning down the Plummers, Ringo and Dallas ride off into the night to begin life anew at his ranch across the border"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
