film 5 of 103

Men Boxing

Film Review by Dean Duncan May 27, 2015

It’s obvious how technically, how technologically important these old films are. Though it may not be evident, their economic significance, as it relates to the soon or eventual development of film and media industries, is also enormous.

But because these films are so old, because production practices and viewing attitudes have changed so much, it might be easy to miss some of the human substance here. It might be easy to forget how marvelous, how miraculous a moving picture of living people really is.

These fellows are looking very fit, and they’re looking very happy too. Faces, positively glowing with health and good fellowship.
