Of American silent films far more have been lost than have survived, and of American sound films made from 1927 to 1950, perhaps half have been lost.

Meanwhile, Grapevine continue to put out nice version of out public domain films, and companies such as Kino, Flicker Alley and Milestone in America, and Eureka and Edition Filmmuseum in Europe, continue to release a steady stream of silent movies.

Prints of Harolds movies are crystal clear. He build his own warehouse to store them at the right temperature but tragically STILL lost practically all of his pre-glasses character shorts in one of those dreaded fires.
Luckily, what WAS saved remains one of the finest silent collections in existence.
