British Silent Movie Stunt

I received an interesting email from the BBC this week. Stephen Stafford wrote in to alert me to an article that describes one of the most expensive and extensive movie stunts in British silent film history: The complete destruction of a train.

The film, The Wrecker, was recently digitally restored, remastered and rescored by composer Neil Brand.

According to the article, "Remarkably, the real crash in The Wrecker is still regarded as the most spectacular rail crash in British cinema history."

Very interesting article, and another film to add to the "buy" list.

The BBC was also kind enough to include a link to WTSM; thank you very much!
