Huck and Tom 1918

Unread post by LampyMeier2007 » Sat Feb 11, 2017 3:06 am

I have always thought that this film was lost with only Tom Sawyer 1917 and Huckleberry FInn 1920 survive.

Was it found ?

Is the source right stating that a Print is located in Archives du Film du CNC, Bois d'Arcy Archive ?

The same Archive have also a print of Tod Brownings 1918 movie The Deciding Kiss.

Also to my surprise the Lost Lon Chaney Film The Price of Silence (1916, Universal Bluebird) is also listed as being held in that Archive.

This would be great news. There are very few surviving Jack Pickford movies from the late teens, and the MHDL archives of magazines and trade journals show that he was a far bigger star during that period than we give him credit for today. What's more, having a complete trilogy of movies from the period given how few silent films exist at all would be quite remarkable. On a more personal note, I have a couple of lobby cards from the film too so would rather like to see it!

Oddly, it says "Holdings: Foreign Archive" which suggest the LoC doesn't have it themselves?

That just says unexpected error (in French) when I click on it.

silentmovies742 you are right the link seems not to work. Just search the site for Tom and Huck on the left side.

So what is this archive going to do about having these incredibly rare films and how long have they had them?

(I demand they be uploaded to YouTube at once!)
