Rare Film of Algernon Blackwood

The English writer of the supernatural Algernon Blackwood (1869-1951) made six short films with Rayant Pictures in 1949 under the series title, A Strange Experience. For many decades these were considered lost but two have recently surfaced courtesy of the British Film Institute. Lock Your Door and The Reformation of St Jules feature a casual Blackwood sitting fireside and telling his own stories apparently from memory.

Watch both films below.
