Mr. Frank Gallop narrates THE GREAT CHASE, a 1962 documentary that highlights action footage from such silent movie favorites as Buster Keaton's "The General" (1927), Pearl White in "The Perils of Pauline" (1914), Douglas Fairbanks in a swashbuckling "The Mark of Zorro" (1920), Edison's pioneering "The Great Train Robbery" (1903), William S. Hart's last film, "Tumbleweeds" (1925) and D.W. Griffith's unparalleled "Way Down East" (1920).

The music track features Larry Adler on harmonica. There's also sound effects that add nicely to the on-screen action.

As of 1/12, the only DVD of THE GREAT CHASE is an out-of-print IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT disc released in 1999.
.

Two other silent-era documentaries are available on a single low-priced DVD: Genius Entertainment's FIRST KINGS OF COMEDY COLLECTION contains Robert Youngson's Oscar-winning "The Golden Age of Comedy" (1957) plus its sequel, "When Comedy Was King" (1960).

This dvd has been great to use in my High School Film Class. Marvelous early gems and the right amount of commentary. The two main forms of early editing, thrilling serials with "continued next week, and a marvelous swashbuckling Zorro. Great Silent Cinema in bite size bits. I wish they would re-release it to make finding it easier!
