Was this supposed to be a joke or something?

I asked on Twitter and they made it seem like it was a sincere mistake. Very odd.

I doubt it actually is a picture of London After Midnight's original camera negative, so what do you know

Correction -- near complete "abridged" version. The write-ups on this discovery are (sadly) a bit misleading.

Even this sounds juicy....
“I succeeded in stealing it but I can’t possibly give more details about how it was done,” Makhmalbaf told the Guardian ..... would love to hear this.

Joe Sarno's The Naked Fog (1966). A mouth-watering find.

Rupert Julian's Silence (1926) has been found at the Cinémathèque Française and part (23 minutes) of the Wallace Beery/Louise Brooks comedy Now We're in the Air was found in the Czech National Archive. Both restorations will world premiere at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.

I don't know the length of the newly discovered copy but Grapevine have been selling a a 75 minute version for several years.

Two years old, but still interesting. The finder posted on Nitrateville.

Would you consider films that are not readily available to the viewing public as "lost films" even if you know they are still somewhere and intact? I've been wanting to watch Uma (1941) for about 3-4 months now and I can't seem to track down a copy online or in VHS form
