Lost British silent film classic Love, Life and Laughter found in Dutch archive  

George Pearson’s 1923 rags-to-riches story starring Betty Balfour had been on BFI ‘most wanted’ list for years

There are few who can claim to have seen the 1923 film Love, Life and Laughter, but the critic of the Manchester Guardian appears to have enjoyed it, acknowledging its masterpiece credentials and calling it “ambitious, spectacular” and “lit and photographed with a beauty to dream of”.

Film-goers will now be able to decide for themselves. The BFI has announced, with some excitement, that the long lost film has been rediscovered in Amsterdam.
