    I have an old film poster “Lubin Presents” The Drug Terror (Evils of Cocaine) Sociological Research Film Corporation in Co-Operation with Mrs. William K. Vandelbilt’s National Crusade. Does anyone know the history of this film?

    Hi there,
    my father just told me that his father was ina Lubin production at Betzwood filmed around 1912. He played one of several workers picking up a railroad tie. He had laughingly told my father how he was expecting the the tie to be real, that is heavy and put his back into it but it flew into the air made out of balsawood or paper. My question is what movie could this have been and is it possible to see it somehow? Yours hopefully, Maria
