Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Here is a cavalcade of the most hair-raising pursuits in film from the silent era: features sequences from “The Great Train Robbery” by pioneer Edwin S Porter; D.W.Griffith’s “Way Down East” with Lillian Gish; “The Mark of Zorro” starring Douglas Fairbanks Snr; Buster Keaton’s “The General” and many others. It is an exciting, funny and classic treat for young and old alike about the silent era. Rated: G
