    I take it you also think that Greed and The Magnificent Ambersons shouldn't be on the NFR, since those films aren't "complete" either? What about Metropolis? Even the new "complete" version is in fact not quite complete, a few moments are still missing. Do you think that one isn't worth preserving (it's obviously not eligible for the NFR since it's German)?

    Sometimes you can only preserve what's left and that's better than letting it all crumble to dust.

    It is in fact a recut and as The Perils of Pauline wasn't released in Europe before this 1916, it has been edited with the title 'Les exploits d'Elaine' which is the literal translation of the later serial with the same crew The Exploits of Elaine. But as The Exploits of Elaine has been released in Europe throw the title Les Mystères de New York (in reference to Eugène Sue's Les Mystères de Paris), Pathé (the producer and the distributor of the film) decided, after the big success of Les Mystères de New York, to insert this previous serial, The Perils of Pauline, inside Elaine's story. That's how in Europe, The Perils of Pauline became... Les exploits d'Elaine. Then, the copies returned to the US, with this European weird editing of a previous serial, and they has had to change the Elaine name in Pauline, because the US audience already knew these adventures...

    Pathé still has in its catalog the plots of 9 episodes with Pauline's story but with Elaine's name^^:

    This is dumb as hell. Looks like a cartoon. "Elaine... I mean, Pauline. You're rich, but you need to be married." "Oh wait, but I want to live a lot of troubles before!" "Sure, I will help you! Run, Pauline, or I'll kill you!" "Ooh Oh! Someone tries to kill me! how exciting! I really don't know who wants me to be dead, really!" "Ah ah! me either... Run!"
