ACCIDENTALLY PRESERVED: RARE AND LOST SILENT FILMS FROM VINTAGE PRINTS is a DVD series of rare/lost silent film shorts that only survive because home-use copies of silent movies were made in the 1920s, 30s and 40s for people to rent and watch at home. This FOURTH VOLUME of rare silent comedies and dramas contains rare 1930s prints made in the 9.5mm film format by the Path├ęscope company (UK). The films on this DVD are presented in new HD digital transfers with new musical scores by renowned silent film accompanist/historian Ben Model. The 9.5mm prints themselves were sourced from the USC Hugh M. Hefner Moving Image Archive. Stars include Bobby Ray, Glenn Tryon, Colleen Moore, Warner Baxter, Mae Marsh, Flora Finch, Pete the pup and more. Unavailable to the public for decades, these delightful comedy shorts are now back onscreen, entertaining fans all over again! THE FILMS: Sid Smith and Jimmie Adams in NONSENSE (1920, dir. Jack White), Warner Baxter and Colleen Moore in THE NINETY AND NINE (1922), Bobby Ray in MEET FATHER (1924), Glenn Tryon in THE WAGES OF TIN (1925), Mae Marsh in TIDES OF PASSION (1925), Ben Corbett in A MAN'S SIZE PET (1926), Walter Forde in WALTER'S PAYING POLICY (1926), and Peggy Shaw and Flora Finch in 'MORNING, JUDGE (1926, dir.
