Out of the Air (1915?)

Unread post by cwo2 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 10:29 am

I have been searching for an old, silent film that supposedly recorded the first ever plane to train transfer (all in the name of saving the proverbial damsel, of course). An article from SilentsAreGolden indicated that the movie was "Out of the Air", reportedly a Mutual 1915 production. Having no luck with their admin, I was advised to try here. Any information the forum might have on the survival and/or whereabouts of said film would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

LOC's lost film list does not list this film as lost as of 1/18. So that is encouraging.

Silent era.com lists this title as a 10/4/1914 release produced by Majestic Motion Picture Company and distributed by Mutual Film Corporation with an unknown survival status in the public domain.

Not in the UCLA archives catalog. My best guess it is still hopefully out there somewhere, so perhaps check with other archives?

Best of luck with your search.
