Silent Discoveries Double Feature

After Six Days (1922): Touted at the time as a “$3,000,000 Entertainment for the Hundred Millions,” this 1920 Old Testament spectacle delivered what it promised…”from the creation of Adam and Eve to the parting of the Red Sea.”

Yesterday and Today:   Veteran funnyman George Jessel is our host and narrator for this light-hearted look-back at the early and often humorously primitive days of motion pictures circa pre-1910. The majority of film sequences benefit from not having much exposure, if any, since their original release, and most are featured in longer excerpts unlike the usual compilations of this type.
