Thomas has digitally restored a set of century-old Mutoscope cards featuring Dan Leno

Formerly believed lost, this re-discovered one-minute silent gem is an important record from a time when very little film survives, and is one of the few known moving picture images of the greatest star of the Victorian stage

The restored film will receive its world premiere at the British Music Hall Society‘s 50th anniversary celebrations at Wilton’s Music Hall, London, on Friday September 20th 2013, introduced by Roy Hudd

Studio 1919 are in pre-production with a proposed documentary on the life and work of Dan Leno, produced and directed by Thomas Everchild
