A pretty useless video I put together, consisting of excerpts from 1950s daytime commercials with the sound removed, in order to demonstrate that such ads can be used in video projects. However, this video itself cannot be used for such video due to heavy compression. The footage is drawn from my section "Classic TV Commercials uploaded by Emperor". I hope this isn't the worst thing ever uploaded. The footage is presented "straight".

"Ramona", A Story of the White Man’s Injustice to the Indian, is a short drama directed by D. W. Griffith, featuring Billy Bitzer, a star of Silent Hall of Fame. Robert Harron also gets credit, but it is difficult to spot him.

Mary Pickford plays a Hispanic girl who falls in love with an Indian.  Undeterred by the vehement objections of her mother, she elopes with her man.  Then when white settlers drive the Indians from their homes the young family meets a tragic end.

"Lightning Bryce" is a Western cliffhanger serial featuring Jack Hoxie, a star of Silent Hall of Fame.

This is episode 6, entitled "Robes of Destruction".  There is action, intrigue, and even a "Mystery Woman".  Stay tuned, 9 more episodes are coming.
