  1. Would like to see this film or even excerpts. Any information would be greatly appreciated

    • Wesley, unfortunately both these films are believed to be lost, meaning they are no longer known to exist in any studio or public archives or in any private collection. Sadly many films made during this era are no longer available for viewing because they have been destroyed either intentionally or through improper storage methods.
