Peter the Great appeared in five films in his five year career until he was killed by an accidental shooting. This rare film was transferred from a 35mm nitrate in the Library of Congress and obtained with the help of Dan Condon. It was filmed at the Metropolitan Studios of 1040 N. Las Palmas Boulevard, Hollywood, Los Angeles, California. A chance to see the work of an almost forgotten animal star.
Included short subject:
Look Out Buster
with Arthur Trimble as Buster Brown.
One of the 51 films from this long running series.
