I recently watched an independent western by J P McGowan (with Franklyn Farnum) on Thought Equity, and then The Slave Market with James Cruze and Marguerite Snow with a date of 1921, although it was probably an un- or re-released 1913 or 1914 Thanhouser. So how were the "lesser" films picked up overseas? I assume the bigger production companies had networks or overseas branches, at least for a while. Did they distribute product other than their own? Were the films sold in a package?
