Two more classic Janus films recovered

Thanks to Charles M for returning two great Harrison Marks film productions, ‘The Gym Lesson’ and ‘The Nurse’s Lesson’, to the Janus archive. These silent films were part of a series that appeared over a couple of years in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Stills from these films were featured in Janus Vol.8 No.7 and Janus Vol.9 No.7.

You can download copies of the films and magazines by clicking on the highlighted links.

If anyone has copies of the other films in the series, ‘The Riding Lesson’ or ‘The School Lesson’, sitting on their hard drive we’d be very interested to hear from you. We are always happy to offer a number of complementary downloads as a ‘thank you’ to anyone who is able to locate Janus material that is not in our possession.

If you are able to help us track down any of our missing films please don’t hesitate to get in touch at
