THE LOST FILMS OF JACK PICKFORD

As people who read the very first post of this blog will know, Jack Pickford is of great interest to me.  Recently while wading through some of the great magazines and journals available through the Media History Digital Library, I came across a surprisingly large number of Pickford pictures and stills from films now thought to be lost forever. I thought it would be nice to bring them together here, and maybe start a series of picture posts about lost films.  Anyhow, I hope you enjoy these rarities.

Finally we have a picture from an unidentified film.  Does anyone have any ideas where it might be from?  It would be from a film from 1917 or earlier.

An interlude

It’s been a month since I posted on here, for which I apologise.  Things were going so well!  But then Christmas starts to creep up, or you start doing other things and then almost forget this little ol’ blog.  The main reason for not writing anything is that I haven’t actually watched a great deal when it comes to classic films of late.  I’ve vegging out with good old-fashioned semi-trashy TV – and that’s not such a bad thing.  Having watched so many films for the PhD, it’s nice to switch off sometimes.   So, this is just a little tiny post to say I haven’t forgotten you, and I’m sure I’ll feel inspired soon and start churning out posts like clockwork.  But if that isn’t until after Christmas, make sure you all have a good one! 🙂
