those if any that are primarily from his Univeral and Fox years, no Griffith, so that'll be about 1914-1929 ?

:o STRAIGHT SHOOTING (1917) Directed by Jack (John) Ford is around. Carey is in at least a couple surviving MGM's. The William Haines feature SLIDE KELLY SLIDE (1927), and THE TRAIL OF '98 (1928). The latter of which was released on DVD-R by Warner Archive.

ROARING RAILS (1924) was restored by George Eastman House and was shown at our place as part of Cinefest 30. It's a terrific film and GEH did a great job with the restoration. I think this is airing on TCM in December....

And ROARING RAILS is included among the small but nice selection of Eastman House's films available for free downloading or watching on line through their website (albeit with a large E superimposed in the lower right corner throughout). Note that none of the silent titles have music tracks, so you may want to download some midi files or mp3 files of a variety of silent film music that you can play while the movie is running.

Last year, I saw at the French Cinémathèque the following Harry Carey feature: The Lightning Rider (1924, Lloyd Ingraham) with HC, Virginia Browne-Fair and Léon Bary. It was a pleasant little western made obviously on a small budget. It felt like a Triangle production of the teens in scope. I think it's in the CF collection.

This is NOT an extant film, but I thought you might like to see it none the less:

I've watched Hell Bent (John Ford 1918) yesterday, I enjoyed it a lot. The film print was discovered in the Czechoslovak Film Archives and I hope it won't take long before a DVD will be available! :)

Carey was a major player for Griffith before striking out on his own, most notably for Universal. Looking at the listings on the IMDb, here are his silents that I have seen:

Judith of Bethulia (1914)
The Battle of Elderbush Gulf (1913)
An Unseen Enemy (1912)
Slide, Kelly, Slide (1912)
The Painted Lady (1912)
Bucking Broadway (1917)
Straight Shooting (1917)
The Trail of '98 (1928)
The Burglar's Dilemma (1912)
Friends (1912)
The Primitive Man (1914)
The Telephone Girl and the Lady (1913)
Roaring Rails (1924)
The Wanderer (1913)
So Near, Yet So Far (1912)
The Switch Tower (1913)
Broken Ways (1913)
McVeigh of the South Seas (1914)
Beyond the Border (1925)
Oil and Water (1913)
The Strong Man's Burden (1913)
Black and White (1913)
The Musketeers of Pig Alley (1912)

I'd really like to see Bill Sharkey's Game.
