I have just posted on youtube a 9.5mm version of Ivan Mosjoukine's first film as director, The Child of the Carnival (1921). It's unavailable in any other format, though does exist almost complete on 35mm. I assembled this version from my own print and one from Dino Everett, who also made the transfers via the USC Hugh Hefner Moving Image Archive.

Enjoy!

Very nice! From the buzz seems the original sound. Optical or magnetic?

It was a silent film, 1921. so sound would not be original. It is certainly very rare on 9.5mm. Ken Finch.

Hi Luigi, the soundtrack is shellac! I added a public domain recording to avoid any possible YouTube problems.

Ops, the print is producted in 1921, yes, true!
But the press is more recent and could be with a soundrack added.
But the one insterted by you is very beautiful! [Smile] And congratulations for scanning, very definite!

Hu Luigi, so glad you enjoyed it. Actually the print itself is almost older than sound films as well; it dates from the late 1920s! The film was professionally transferred by forum member Dino Everett.
