A Full Program Disc
Whenever you buy a DVD you get the movie but not the movie experience. Sunrise Silents is trying to change all that by presenting an entire program of colorful attractions. It is our hope that you will feel as though you have been to the movies after watching one of our Full Program DVDs. And we believe the pleasure of the movie experience is what viewing films is all about. Thank you for considering Sunrise and we hope you enjoy the show.
THE WHITE SISTER (Inspiration Pictures - 1923)
Lillian Gish, Ronald Colman, Gail Kane, J. Barney Sherry, Charles Lane. Directed by Henry King. ~ ~ ~ The story of a woman (Lillian Gish) who discovers a new meaning in life after losing all she once possessed, only to be tempted to return to her former self. An excellent example of the silent photoplay with fine performances by Lillian Gish and Ronald Colman. Directed by Henry King, who would go on to make Stella Dallas two years later. A subtly poignant film.
KID AUTO RACES (Keystone - 1914)
Charles Chaplin, Henry Lehrman. Directed by Henry Lehrman. ~ ~ ~ The film that introduced Chaplin's little tramp character to the world. This Sunrise Silents edition is the original version that was released as a split reel in 1914, before additional footage was subsequently spliced in to increase the running time.
THE GREAT CHEESE ROBBERY (J.R. Bray Studios - 1920)
Krazy Kat. Written by George Herriman. ~ ~ ~ Krazy Kat came to movie screens from the pages of the Sunday comics and was every bit as surrealistic as Pat Sullivan's Felix.
MYSTERY OF THE DOUBLE CROSS - Chapter 5 : The Life Current (Pathe - 1917)
Mollie King, Leon Bary, Ralph Stuart. Directed by Louis J. Gasnier, William Parke. ~ ~ ~ Philippa receives and accepts a marriage proposal. This chapter is rather generous with the clues - but only if you're watching closely.
