The 11 films on "Found at 'Mostly Lost'" are not only new to DVD, this is probably the first time anyone has seen any of them in decades. Until now, these one-of-a-kind rare shorts could not circulate because they were unidentified, meaning that their main titles were missing, due to damage or decomposition. But now they can be seen, thanks to the participants in the annual "Mostly Lost" film identification workshop, presented by the Library of Congress, who have identified these rarities. You'll recognize comedians like Snub Pollard, Hank Mann, Monty Banks, Jimmie Adams, and even pre-Lucy William Frawley in an early sound film of his vaudeville act. Musical scores for the silent films on the DVD are by Philip Carli, Ben Model or Andrew E. Simpson.
THE FILMS: The Nickel Snatcher (Hank Mann), Fidelity (Gertrude Norman), The Paper-Hanger's Revenge (Bud Duncan), A Brass Button, Jerry's Perfect Day (George Ovey), One Million B.C. test footage, Ventriloquist (William Frawley), Fifteen Minutes (Snub Pollard), In And Out (Monty Banks), Grief (Jimmie Adams), The Joyride (George LeMaire).

They helped found the Otino Waa Children's Village so that the "night commuters" (children in dire need) would have a place to live.
The story also includes the story of felon artists at the Snake River Correctional facility in Oregon that sell their art to help fund Otino Waa.
Director Sandy Cummings has made an excellent film about these children and their needs but also how they are healing and growing strong.
My only complaint - I wish the entire film had been subtitled in English. I am partially deaf and it was difficult to understand parts of the film, with accents, etc.
NOTE: I received a copy of this film in exchange for my honest review.
