Free Film

So, with a wealth of material on the internet I thought it was time to point of some of the choicer material out there. There'll be a different selection each month and it'll range from features to shorts or charming little scraps. This month's choice: 

The School for Scandal

Basil Rathbone's first film only exists in a 10 minute version released for the home cinema market in 9.5mm, but there's enough of it there to see what a handsome production it was. Restoration Comedy relies on a lot of word play but this has to do the heavy lifting with looks and intertitles. Apart from Rathbone, the other familiar face is John Stuart. Aldwych farce star Mary Brough is also in the film though it doesn't look like her scenes were included.
