Silent Film Fun

Carmel Myers cuff from Moving Pictures e-book by Donna Kallner
Here's a little treat for the students in my Moving Pictures classes last week at Bead & Button, and fans of my Moving Pictures image transfer jewelry e-book: Last week the New York Times reported on a treasure trove of American silent films found in New Zealand. There's more information about the repatriation of the New Zealand collection at the National Film Preservation Foundation web site, where you can also watch some short clips from the era including a trailer for Australian release of The Sin Woman, a couple of short documentaries, a newsreel, and an animated cartoon.
