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