Research has revealed that British Director Percy Stow filmed a Pied Piper movie in 1907 and a Robin Hood film in 1908! If he did a Wilhelm Tell, that would be amazing.
The Piper Film is not available online, but hopefully soon screenable in the Hameln Museum.
First Robin Film: “Robin Hood and his Merry Men” (1908). Dir. Percy Stow. Robin saves a man from the Sheriff of Nottingham’s gallows.
