  1. Great story Michelle. I just wish we had a YouTube clip to watch. 🙂 The title card and Zulu subject matter has me interested.

      I wonder if it’ll eventually be released on DVD… Probably will be. It’s exciting to know that these lost films are being rediscovered all these years later, especially a film like “Mamba” because it was so ahead of its time when it was released. Sounds like a thorough job has been done of the restoration too. I’m sure the audience will have a great time viewing it.

    This is really good news Michelle. It does seem that more of these films are being found and restored. I watched a few Mabel Normand films and I was completly enthralled.

    Here is hoping more films will show up
