An Awesome Silent Movie–Princess Nicotine

Why cant Hollywood make films like this anymore?

Filmed in 1909, and sometimes titled The Smoke Fairy, the film follows a smoker who falls asleep and is visited by two fairies who play tricks on him.

As a bit of trivia, the films was the first instance of tobacco product placement (for Sweet Corporal cigarettes and cigars) in movies.

The film was deemed significant in 2003 by the Library of Congress and is part of the National Film Registry.
