Go and Get It (1920)

Has a print of this horror/action film turned up in the Cineteca Film Archive?

I haven't heard anything; but that doesn't mean squat. Most of the world's film archives do not advertise their holdings, and only the biggest most important discoveries get international press. If it has been located, word will slowly leak out in time.

The problem is compounded by the number of archives with the word "Cineteca" in their names:
Cineteca del Fruili
Cineteca della Calabria
Cineteca di Bologna
Cineteca Italiana
Cineteca Lucana
Cineteca Nacional de Chile
Cineteca Nacional Mexico
Cineteca Nazionale Italiana
Cineteca Nuevo Leon

Take your pick.

The Cineteca Nazionale Italiana according to the lady who posted the info on the Facebook Silent Movie group. No response as of yet as to the source. A mistake, most likely.

I have seen this too and wondered.
These lost films are also said to have been found but no info elsewhere as in Library of Congress Research site, American Silent Feature Film Database. Huck and Tom 1918, The Price of Silence(18) and A Mans Country(19) both with Lon Chaney and Tod Brownings The Deciding Kiss )(1918) (of which I have seen also another source confirming the find.)

The first step is to contact the archive and ask what elements they have on this title. Could be a complete feature, could only be a a few reels, could be only a fragment. Then ask if their policy allows them to sell digitized copies (most archives do not). If they say yes, then you go on from there (regarding cost). If no, then there's nothing you can do.
