Regeneration

video
A clip from an early movie classic made by Raoul Walsh that captures part of the world that David Kotzin lived in. A description:
It stars John McCann, James A. Marcus, Maggie Weston, H. McCoy, Rockliffe Fellowes, William Sheer, Carl Harbaugh, and Anna Q. Nilsson. It was adapted by Carl Harbaugh and Raoul Walsh from a memoir My Mamie Rose by Owen Frawley Kildare and the adapted play by Kildare and Walter C. Hackett. It was directed by Walsh. In 2000, Regeneration was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". This is the story of a young buy whose mother has died at an early aged and he is forced to live in poverty and the life of a gangster until he is reformed Famous quote from the film: “And then the years pass and Owen still lives in a World where might is right – and where the prizes of existence got to the man who is the most daring in defying the law, and the quickest fist in defending his own rights. Owen, at seventeen” – H. McCoy Stylistically a very advanced film with it's use of crosscutting and advanced plot development.
