Returning to Lost London — 2 Comments

  1. That was a fabulous series. I especially liked the stills, quite a few of which I had never seen. I was especially taken with the stills illustrating Chapters 13 and 24. Never saw those before and they make the film even more tantalizing.

    The one missing film I wish would turn up is Paul Leni's "The Chinese Parrot." Based on what I've seen of Leni's "The Cat and the Canary" and "The Man Who Laughs" the idea of this great stylist helming a Charlie Chan mystery is mouth watering indeed.

  2. Thanks, Kevin! The pics I used were, of course, all from the published novel (except those in Part 1, which were from MoMA's Lost Films book). Many of them were new to me, too, though they also turn up in TCM's reconstruction of London.
