This old film footage was shot on the set of the lost 1930 movie "KISMET" Otis Skinner created his most famous stage role in KISMET and went on to play it until his death. He first filmed it as a 1920 silent and then recreated the role in this 1930 talkie "KISMET" with Loretta Young. The work used an experimental 65 mm wide screen format and some Technicolor. Unfortunately no print or negative is known to exist so we can't gauge it's effectiveness. This version is considered to be one of the "LOST" films. Otis Skinner was 72. This was his only feature-length sound film. In September 1928, Warner Bros. Pictures purchased a majority interest in First National Pictures and from that point on, all "First National" productions were actually made under Warner Bros. control, even though the two companies continued to retain separate identities until the mid-1930's, after which time "A Warner Bros.-First National Picture" was often used.
