1927 Coronel & Falkland Islands movie restored

Postby paulcadogan » Mon Oct 20, 2014 9:00 pm

A silent movie made in 1927 using British ships....

See story here:

And a preview here:

Looks like they used QE class battleships for Invincible & Inflexible, along with C or D class light cruisers.

Should make for a fascinating watch!
