Fa parte degli Orphan Works del British Film Institute
Durata: 2 min.
This tantalising fragment offers just a glimpse of an early two-reel (20-minute) drama made by George Pearson| who became an important feature film director in the 1920s but whose films are almost all tragically lost. The well-photographed surviving scene was shot on location in Devon| and seems to show a mid-point of the plot| which concerned rival suitors| a Londoner and a local sailor. The sailor is played by Percy Moran| better known as Lieutenant Daring in a popular adventure series of the period. In 2014| a copy of George Pearson's Love| Life and Laughter - one of the 75 titles in the BFI's 2010 'Most Wanted' list of missing British films - was found in an a small Dutch town. This video is part of the Orphan Works collection. When the rights-holder for a film cannot be found| that film is classified as an Orphan Work.
