In a 2015 post, our friend, John Cox asked the question:
So who released the film in the UK in ’26, I wonder?
I shared with John that TMFB (5,700 feet) was reviewed and picked up by a London-based company (i.e., Unity Film Company) at a Trade Show on May 20, 1926 for release on Dec. 27, 1926.
What I didn’t share was the actual review (page 64 below) from the May 20th, 1926 Kinematograph Weekly No. 986 that I obtained in 2015 from the British Film Institute:
“Films at a Glance – Continued.”
Title and Renter: MAN FROM BEYOND, THE (Unity)
Running Time and Certificate: 60 min ()
Type: Sensational drama
Remarks: Poorly constructed return-from-the dead story with rescue from waterfall climax.
Box-Office Angle: Mediocre popular book-ing.
Do you agree with the review?
