Hello list. I am having some trouble locating copies of some silent era
films and was hoping that someone on the list could point me in the
right direction. I have put the three I am struggling to find below.
Thanks for any assistance that you can lend to me. Best--George

Pocahontas (1908) - may also be called "Pocahontas: A Child of the Forest" or simply "A Child of the Forest". LOC has a copy (on kinetoscope) of a film called "A Child of the Forest" (also directed by Edwin Porter) from 1909. I was wondering if anyone knows of any other formats that this might be in (and available).

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
