During the 1920s, '30s and '40s, rental libraries made 16mm copies of silent movies for home movie enthusiasts to rent and watch at home. Because these movies were printed on 16mm safety stock, many of them have outlived the original 35mm nitrate prints of silent films that are now lost or extremely rare. It's as if these movies were…

This 5th volume of rare silent films draws on the archive of film collector and accompanist Jon C. Mirsalis. In Lorraine of the Lions, Patsy Ruth Miller is a female Tarzan in a tale that anticipates King Kong; the antics in Love at First Flight finds Lige Conley in trouble in a plane and on the beach; in Hoofbeats of Vengeance equine star Rex, King of Wild Horses is out for retribution over his owner's murder; and in The Fourth Commandment Belle Bennett is caught in a power struggle with her mother-in-law when she moves in with the couple and their son. Each of these 4 films are presented in new 2K scans made by the Library of Congress from vintage 16mm prints made in the 1920s, and are accompanied by new musical scores by Mirsalis.

Unavailable to the public for decades, these obscure silent era gems are now back onscreen, entertaining fans all over again! An Undercrank Productions/Library of Congress release. Produced for home video by Jon C. Mirsalis and Ben Model. REGION-FREE.
