    Little Orphant Annie (1918) Blu-ray Review
    [​IMG]


    With the vast majority of silent films no longer existent due to the ravages of time, faulty studio preservation techniques, or plain neglect, it’s something of a miracle that we have 1918’s Little Orphant Annie directed by Colin Campbell available for viewing.

    I bought this from Grayson's own hands and have met and chatted with Ben Model and his wife. Matt, you'll appreciate this. Ben's wife, Mana (sp?), was in the original B'way cast of Merrily We Roll Along, which means I saw her in it, so she and I chatted about being Sondheim groupies.

    I've see Ben Model accompanying films in person before and it's always a treat. He had some particularly funny improvisations at one show where the film ripped.

    It's good to see another one of Colleen Moore's films saved. I recently saw Why Be Good? and I was blown away by her.

    I think you sold me a Blu-ray, Matt!
