Lost Colony silent movie

Dr. Larry Tise, the Wilbur and Orville Wright Distinguished Professor of History at East Carolina University (ECU), and a historian at Roanoke Island Historical Association have confirmed that the film found recently at Roanoke Island is a true copy of the 46-minute silent movie, made in 1921, on the 1580s exploration of the Outer Banks.  It was the first motion picture produced by a woman (Elizabeth Grimball).

The movie is part of the Digital Collections at ECU and can be viewed at https://digital.lib.ecu.edu/51195.
