(Clarence Brown, US 1922, 78 min., 35mm)
Silent Tuesdays. Starring Hope Hampton and Lon Chaney, this film had been available only in a very heavily edited 33-minute abridgement—until now. A wealthy young woman is critically injured and is brought back to health by drinking from a goblet with healing powers that is reputed to be the Holy Grail. The Eastman House restoration has restored the film to its original release length. This rarely seen full-length version is not available on home video. Live piano accompaniment by Philip C. Carli.
