Storyline

A compilation of early-day silent films that serves as a glimpse back to the formative days of the movie industry as a salute to Hollywood's Golden Year, so proclaimed by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce as 1953. It is unlike most of the films featuring clips from old films as it shows scenes from French, Russian, Italian, British and American films made in the 1890s and early 1900s...and on through the 1920s. Written and narrated by George Jessel (George Jessel) and put together by editor and associate producer (Paul Weatherwax) from over 150,000 feet of old footage, some of it printed on paper. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
