Enter a world of fantasy, romance, exotic lands and vivid reality. The Marvellous Corricks, a talented family of musical entertainers, first toured silent films over 100 years ago. Two new documentaries tell the story of the family, the rediscovery of the films stored in a Tasmanian garage and the restoration of 130 films by the NFSA.
