FRAGMENT | The fragment consists of three scenes from The Old Merchant’s Home. The first scene shows the meeting between a distinguished man (played by Philip Beck), a beautiful young woman, and another man. In the next scene, a train draws up at a platform. A boy is standing in the foreground, looking at the camera. In the last scene, a woman is sitting in a living room, sewing. A man enters and assaults her, but is driven out by someone else, who comes to her rescue. Next, two other people enter the living room.
The fragment consists of snippets from the original film. At the moment, it’s not possible to decipher how the sequence of events should be pieced together. The film has no intertitles.
