Subject: 1920's Version of CW Signals Re-enactment in the Movies, Securing Footage Of

Message Detail:
Eric,

Tnx for alerting us to the old Silent film from the '20s called "The Coward".

You mention in yours (see View Parent Message) that:

"All I can say is that their ... [1920's actor staged signalling]... style left MUCH to be desired... Neat to see the correct flag being used at least".

Would you mind elaborating a bit more on just what the Confederate signal flag looked like, i.e. ties/sleeve, taper'd pole, rectangular vs. square, small vs large size flag?

Since you are oft times around audio-visual equipments can you possible record a bit more of the documentation on the 1920's silent movie entitled "Coward" and perhaps even capture the length of footage which depicts the 'less-than' desired signal party in action?

Is it possible to save the segment to DVD along with the roll-by credits and forward a copy for inclusion to the archive, please?

Tnx,
Walt

PS This might be the beginning of a new section of the SCA/SCARD archives which can be set aside to store the various visual film clips involving signal and telegraphic segments of motion picture re-creations. Anyone else want to submit the clippetts of subsequent action shots - here's your opportunity? 3.3.3.
