A Brilliant Example of Early Clock Cinema

I somehow missed this flash when it was first released. Or re-released, I should say, as Internet Clock Movie Database (iCMDB) lists the original release date as 1914. For the longest time this film was on the list of "Lost Films" from the history of Clocktopia cinema. Along with such classics as "Midnight in Clocktopia," "Her Friend the Clock," "KaiserClock, Beast of Clocktopia," and "The World, The Flesh, and the Clocks," this film was considered amongst the pinnacle of silent-era Clock cinema. Like many of these early 20th century clock films, it was considered lost in the great WarnerClock Bros. studio fire of 1937. It's great to see that you not only found a copy of this piece of history, but that you were able to use modern tools to digitally clean and enhance the original print. While many critics were critical of the director giving himself the best line in the film, it was overall praised for its complexity of character, depth of plot, gripping climax, and an example of high drama in an otherwise low-brow era of cinema.

Thank you for saving this film from obscurity. The world is a better place for your efforts.

It's easy to miss something six years late, old bean.


All the kids whining about the slides just need to learn to read faster. I mean, read a book or something, instead of playing hentai games on Newgrounds all day. Personally, I loved this movie. Well done, Corpsey.
