Fox-Lehrman Sunshine Comedy Found

Unread post by Paul E. Gierucki » Thu Aug 07, 2008 8:09 pm

Great news for Lloyd Hamilton, Henry Lehrman and Jack White fans:

A print of the Fox-Lehrman Sunshine Comedy HUNGRY LIONS IN A HOSPITAL (1918) has been found.

While the film is incomplete, approximately six minutes of footage is missing, it is of excellent quality and retains the original English intertitles.

From the February 2, 1918 issue of Moving Picture World:

From the February 9, 1918 issue of Moving Picture World:

At present, a new preservation neg and prints are being prepared.

FYI - We screened the short at Slapsticon 2008, unbilled, for those troopers who made it through the final day. It pays to stay late!

I'll post some frame grabs when the lab work has been completed.

That is because Paul had placed his photos on the members.aol.com website, and it no longer exists.
