That's great news. I honestly thought it was long lost. It obviously escaped the 60s MGM vault fire. I'd love to see it. Harold how about the status of another similar sounding feature from around the same time TAXI, TAXI?
Don't know about this one--it isn't on the list of extant Universal silents (http://tinyurl.com/3kzqsy2), but there are probably a number of titles from that studio that survived in 16mm and aren't widely known about (e.g. K--The Unknown from '24 and Raffles from '25 aren't on the list but have been shown at festivals in the past decade).sepiatone wrote:Harold how about the status of another similar sounding feature from around the same time TAXI, TAXI?
According to the Library of Congress, they have all 7 reels of 16mm and they received it from he preservation department of the MGM archive which at least at that time had a copy as well.
