Note: In several issues of the Gaslight News we find a mention that the Romance of Riverton film was shown. The silent film was transferred to safety film in 1980 and to videotape in 1989. The state of video transfer is far better today than it was in 1989. The Society very much desires to locate that safety film copy so that we may make a high-quality video from it.
