A Curiosity
Back when home movies were really "movies" (and silent ones at that): shot on film on an 8mm (and later Super8) camera and shown on a projector (that Dad would swear at when the film didn't uptake correctly!) with a fold-up screen, the manufacturers would often repackage cartoons or edited movies and sell them. We had a "Deputy Dawg" cartoon that I loved as a kid. These were also silent, with subtitles.

Here's a short film edited from Disney's "The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh" in QuickTime format:

"Mysterious Dr. Syn"
