Can we put together a list of his existing silents, and which ones are out on the market,
or currently playing in theaters? :D

The FIAF database lists several Farnum silents that haven't been mentioned yet: The Firebrand (1922), Flaming Frontier (1926), Les Miserables (1918), Samson (1915), and Wolves of the Border (1923).

That is Dustin Farnum in The Flaming Frontier (1926) as General George Custer.

Re The Flaming Frontier: I just noticed that FIAF lists the title under the names of both Dustin and William Farnum, although William is not in the film. I don't know if they mixed up any other credits between the two.

Those were the villains at work and he's the good guy in SOTC. I'm not sure if it's his finest moment.
