In the Land of the Setting Sun (1919), a lost silent historical shot around Portland, Oregon. A script and stills exist which would cost a mint to have copied from the Library of Congress. Maybe nowadays with digital scanning not so bad as in past times. If ANY footage turns up, I would be DELIGHTED. Ditto the epic serial The Oregon Trail (1923). If any of this still exists, it isn't the episode I want. (For all I know, these things have been discovered since I asked and no one told me, which I wouldn't put past some people.) Silent films are still uncovered when renovating old theaters and cleaning out collector's vaults. The first full-length drama shot in America even turned up under some dude's bed a few years back. Carolina, a Shirley Temple Civil War drama with Lionel Barrymore, (before The Little Colonel,) Robert Young, (before Stowaway,) and Delmar Watson, (before Heidi.) Shirley's acquaintance with Delmar from this film prompted her to choose him as Peter in Heidi. Robert Young also claimed it was during this film, and not The Little Colonel, where Barrymore went after Shirley with violent intent when she remarked on his forgetting lines. Young said he was the one who grabbed Shirley before Barrymore could inflict serious harm. This film was long said to be lost, but I have since learned two copies are in existence but are being suppressed due to some racially offensive material. Run it with a disclaimer and suck it up, snowflakes! Perhaps I should tell TCM this--it's what they did with the first episode of the Walt Disney TV show. Since 1992 I have been trying to watch as much of Dean Stockwell's work as possible and have viewed vehicles from the sublime to the truly awful. I am particularly interested in anything from 1945 - 1975 which I haven't seen and if anyone wants to know I can make a list. The Mickey Mouse Club. The original 1955 - 1959 program was rerun for the 20th anniversary in 1975, but the hour-long episodes were cut to half an hour. The other half of each program is sealed in the Disney vaults along with Song of the South, (which incidentally I also haven't seen and would like to,) and of course I haven't seen any of it since 1975, though as I understand it has since been available somewhere...a friend has seen it who was not born until 1978. John and Julie, fun 1955 film about two British kids running off to see Queen Elizabeth's coronation. Features a rare early appearance by Peter Sellers. Sometime after the 1969 Disney movie of Sterling North's Rascal, a Japanese cartoon of over 50 episodes was produced, which, although it adds many characters and incidents not in the book, might still blow the Disney version out of the water. It is forbidden to air or transport any copy of it to the U. S. due to Disney owning U. S. rights. If they are going to be like that, Rascal is a movie which probably SHOULD be remade, instead of cranking out endless sequels to, and inferior versions of, films they got right the first time! The Curiosity Shop, an early 1970s children's program created by Chuck Jones. Supposedly lost when the video masters were taped over, but if I understand correctly what went out to TV stations were 16 mm prints some of which may still exist--I sure hope so. "Oregon Bound," a two-part episode of an obscure children's TV series, Go-USA. I'd be pleased to see ANY episode of Go-USA, but this one I want BADLY--I would welcome even a script or production stills. I have gone so far as to contact three of the actors, two directly and another through another actor. Two answered, one contacted me directly hoping I had a copy, the other said through his friend that he remembers being in it but nothing else. A copy of this actually does exist, but only in the Museum of Broadcasting in California. Again, I hope a 16 mm film of it turns up! A number of older TV-movies rarely see the light of day, which really should. A film of Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory is hailed as a classic. It might have run on PBS years ago but I've never seen it. The Addie Mills series by Gail Rock, The House Without a Christmas Tree, The Thanksgiving Treasure, Addie and the King of Hearts, and a fourth one, The Easter Promise or something. Great movies. One from the late 1970s of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, said to be a perfect adaptation of the book. All of these books are readily available but I've either not seen the movies in 45 years, or never. Scary movies which have stuck with me since childhood, Something Evil, with Johnny Whitaker possessed, (before The Exorcist,) Crowhaven Farm, The Screaming Woman, The Failing of Raymond, and A Little Game. All (as I remember) awesome, but doomed, because they did not happen to be born theatrical, to moulder in obscurity. This must be remedied. Run them again and see how they hold up!
