Original 1905 film shot and probably directed by G.W. "Billy" Bitzer (and returned from limbo, rescued via Kemp Niver refilming a deteriorated paper print filed for copyright purposes with the Library of Congress.) It is most reverently examined here, with a new movie almost incidentally coming into being. (Ken Jacobs, 1969 - 1971, 16mm film print, 122 minutes)
