20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1916)

I notice that at least one of the titles named to the National Film Registry yesterday is in the public domain, since it's from before 1923. That would be the 1916 version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. No Kirk Douglas here, and no singing to Esmerelda the seal, since it's a silent movie. But since it's in the public domain, it's available on Youtube:

Of course, the Youtube printes aren't as well preserved as what we'll get after the Library of Congress is done. Or, at least, that what one would hope.
