Silent Treasure Trove

I don't know if anyone saw this recent story, but several silent films thought to be lost were found in New Zealand, including the only known copy of a 1927 John Ford film called "Upstream," a film directed by and starring Mabel Normand, and a Clara Bow period drama.

When the estimate is less than 20 percent of all silent films survive, it's always worth celebrating one of these rare finds. I am sure once they are preserved, they will show up on Turner Classic Movies -- something to look forward to!
