The Great Train Robbery

The first motion picture to be shot with a coherent narrative celebrates a century with this release featuring the original silent print as well as a digitally-enhanced version, with new music and sound effects tracks and some colour-tinted sequences. Also included are three classic westerns from the silent era. First, Tom Mix at his heroic best in D.W. Griffith's 'The Heart of Texas Ryan' (1916). 'Tumbleweeds' (1925) stars William S. Hart (in his final role) as a cattleman facing the end of the wide-open frontier. And finally, Lillian Gish and Mae Marsh are two girls from the East who run afoul of Injuns in 'The Battle of Elderbush Gulch' (1913).
