It would be great to have THE HOMEMAKER (1925) out, since that's such a great film. SURRENDER, since that's Ivan Mosjoukine's only American film. Any Lois Weber or cleo Madison directed titles that can be found anywhere. And any Ida May Park title that might survive somewhere, particularly BREAD.

It's been preserved and if they put it on dvd I'm publicly committed to buying a copy.


Yes, and we ran it at Cinecon a few years ago. SKINNER'S DRESS SUIT is also done, AFAIK, as is Ford's STRAIGHT SHOOTING.

BTW, please list specific titles if you can.

I'm going to go with the 1925 Phantom of the Opera and The Cat and the Canary.

I second this motion! Love me some Collegians!

Agreed. This one might actually turn a profit.
