People on Sunday
(1930)

 

The original nitrate negative of People on Sunday (1930) is presumed lost, and no complete copy of the film exists. The film was reconstructed in 1997 by Martin Koerber for the EYE Film Instituut Nederland, and their restoration version contains scenes missing from other surviving prints of the film.
