And it is the absence of this history that underscores the need for a Deaf Film Festival, such as the one that was held at the Pacific Film Archives on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, from February 21st through the 23rd.

 KODAK: Super 8mm Film History   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Although 35mm film had been the standard for theatrical releases for decades, the large film was cumbersome, expensive, and dangerous due to its flammable nature.
Utilizing a special 16mm film which had double the number of perforations on both sides, the film maker would run the film through the camera in one direction, then reload and expose the other side of the film, the way an audio cassette is used today.
The success of 8mm film was almost immediate, and within about fifteen years, 16mm film became almost exclusively a format of the professional filmmaker.

The film does not emphasize these rituals, the Ark of the Covenant is never built, there are no meticulous instructions for the construction of the Tabernacle, and blood is never poured on the altar to sanctify the relationship between God and the people.

 At-A-Glance Film Reviews: Our Hospitality (1923)
While not Keaton's greatest work, this is nevertheless a fine film, with at least two classic Keaton sequences.
The first is a string of mishaps during a long train ride -- trains were among Keaton's favorite comic props (later given a starring role in his masterpiece, The General) as this early feature clearly illustrates.
The second is a hilarious and breathtaking waterfall rescue which, like all of Keaton's stunts, was performed by the man himself.

 INKPOT MOVIES: THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (Essay by Jeff Dane)
The spiritual message in his biblical-subject films was deeply felt by him throughout his career, and it manifested itself not only in his work but also in the deeds and conduct of his life.
