  1. KC,
    I'm glad you're enjoying the set candids! Those posts are such fun to do.

  2. Thanks for the link, KC! I hope you get a chance to check out the movie. :)

    Best wishes,

  3. Now I just have to keep hoping that The Patriot (1928) turns up someday.


  4. What wonderful news for all silent film lovers!
    how exciting!

  5. Page--Yes, I love all that behind the scenes stuff!

    Laura--Your review definitely sold me. I would love to know how they made the casting decisions for that one.

    Matt--I believe just about anything could show up now. It's a real long shot--but I'm really hoping that Theda Bara's Cleopatra will be found some day.

    Rina--The thing that got me was how many titles they found! There's got to be treasure troves like this all over the world. I hope the news gets people to start searching.
