Australian Silent film based on the Fatty Finn comic strips. This was the last silent film made in Australia. It was shot in the Sydney streets in 1927. The suburb where it is set is Wooloomoloo, which is an inner city suburb between the CBD and Potts Point. At the time this was film was made, it was a poor area. It is now an expensive, trendy suburb. The billy goat race had to be filmed in Queensland as the New South Wales government had banned such races a year before this film was made. The projection speed has been corrected so the film runs a little longer than other versions.

When his wife accidently kills a man while fending off his unwanted advances, an inventor takes the blame and is sent to prison for 15 years. When he gets out, he finds that his daughter doesn't know who he is, and that's just the beginning. An early "talkie".

Early silent version of James Fenimore Cooper's classic story. It's not the best transfer in the world, and I couldn't find any info on this at IMDB, but according to the information I have, that's Bela Lugosi in the role of Chingachgook. If that's not Bela, it sure looks like him. Runs about 45 minutes.

1921 Silent film starring and produced by Hobart Bosworth. This film was directed by Rowland V Lee and tells the story of a bitter sea captain angry with the world because his wife left him. The film also stars Emory Johnson and Bessie Love. Copied from 8mm so it is very grainy and murky.
