'The Daughter of Dawn', an astounding lost film from the 1920s starring Native Americans

More than 80% of all silent films ever made are gone. Nobody had a sense of the value of these things, and so most of the films of the period were destroyed rather than stored. Many classics, many historical moments, are lost forever to time.

IHC After Dark cartoons: Eveready Harton in “Buried Treasure” (NSFW)

Put the kids to bed, because here’s the very first porno animated cartoon. There are plenty of dicks going into every orifice and lots of orifices taking lots of things. Even by today’s standards, this cartoon is pretty raunchy. But it’s educational and historical.

The first porno-cartoon was made in New York. It was called “Eveready Harton” and was made in the late 20’s, silent, of course-by three studios. Each one did a section of it without telling the other studios what they were doing. Studio A finished the first part and gave the last drawing to Studio B […] Involved were Max Fleischer, Paul Terry and the Mutt and Jeff studio. They didn’t see the finished product till the night of the big show. A couple of guys who were there tell me the laughter almost blew the top off the hotel where they were screening it.

If you’re a fan of silent film and you can, go see Abel Gance’s 1927 film Napoleon

Abel Gance’s Napoleon, from 1927, is considered by film buffs who have seen it, as one of the most epic and moving movies ever made. The problem is that very few have seen it, because the move requires three synchronized projectors. Unhappy with the aspect ratio of cameras at the time, Gance shot much of the movie in triptych to try and simulate widescreen, and almost no theater is equipped to do that. But for a limited time, the film is touring around the US, so catch it if you can.

The Human Centipede was first invented in 1928

It’s not nearly as grotesque or “medically accurate” as the 2009 movie, and there’s definitely no ass to mouth, but it is a human centipede.

The world’s first ‘car phone’ from the 1920s

While not technically a “cell phone”— that technology wouldn’t be invented until the 1970s— inventors in the 1920s still liked to tinker with the technology of radio to come up with things that might change people’s lives. One of these was this walkie talkie like car phone that could send and receive messages on the go. Hot shit.
