Upstream 1927

upstream2

Previously thought lost, the film was found in 2010 stored in a New Zealand film archive. According to a June 07, 2010 article in the Los Angeles Times, Upstream, unlike several other films found in the same cache, was considered so valuable, its restoration was carried out in New Zealand before it had several copies shipped to the US. The restoration was funded by 20th Century-Fox–whose predecessor, Fox Films, originally produced the picture.

This John Ford film centres on a boarding house that is home to actors and various other performing artists.  When one of the gets asked to perform Hamlet in London, the boarding house troupe is thrilled and sends him off joyously. But how will they react when success goes to his head?
