Back in November of 2016, I plugged a Kickstarter project instituted by author/silent film collector Edward Lorusso to restore the 1922 Marion Davies film Beauty’s Worth…and while I would have loved to throw a few coins into Ed’s guitar case to help with this worthy goal, I found myself woefully short of funds at the time. (A condition I often describe here at Rancho Yesteryear as “weekly.”) I was heartened to learn, however, that the DVD of Worth will eventually be made available via Ben Model’s Undercrank Productions, so maybe I’ll be “healthy” (to channel my inner Damon Runyon) by that time to grab a copy. (If you happen to be flush with cash, you might be interested in Lorusso’s latest campaign to bring life to Davies’ April Folly —which will conclude tomorrow at 12:58pm EDT.)
