Artistic Pictures

The 31st Pordenone Silent Film Festival, scheduled for October 6 to October 13, 2012, will show a program called “The Stories of W. W. Jacobs.”  Jacobs, an English fiction writer, wrote humorous stories, but is best known for a 1902 horror short story called “The Monkey’s Paw.”  The program includes the following films, all directed by H. Manning Haynes:

  • A WILL AND A WAY (1922)
  • SAM’S BOY (1922)
  • THE SKIPPER’S WOOING (1922)
  • THE HEAD OF THE FAMILY (1922)
  • THE BOATSWAIN’S MATE (1924)

Artistic Pictures made all of the films in England.  The studio also made a film of The Monkey’s Paw in 1923.  Victor McLaglen, best known for “Gunga Din (1939),” stars in The Boatswain’s Mate.
