This is an amusing public domain video which was ripped from an old VHS recording. All of the available copies of this video came from the same deteriorated film. The original film may have been recorded from a collector's copy, or possibly from an old late night movie program. Various vendors have marketed copies all coming from the same source, and possibly from the same VHS copy. At last count there are several vendors, Alpha, Nostalgia Family Video, Anchor Videos, Vci Home Video and others....

A short feature from 1948 in colour. A bunch of Rascal-like kids solve a mystery in the mansion on the hill. Features George Zucco. This is one of many 1948 Hal Roach films that lapsed into the public domain when the comany fell into financial difficulties in the 1970s.

6 star movie. We should consider ourself lucky this survives.We should not expect more from a 1912...

Cleopatra is a silent film created in 1912 by Helen Gardner and the Helen Gardner Picture Players. The film, in which Gardner stars in the title role, was based on a play written by Victorien Sardou. In a series of elaborately staged tableaux, it depicts Cleopatra (Gardner) and her love affairs, first with handsome fisherman-slave Pharon, then with Marc Antony. The film features lavish sets and costumes and at just over an hour, it was considered fairly lengthy.
