Regeneration & The Yellow Ticket

Admission: $1.50

may be the first feature-length gangster film, although there is more in it that reflects back to Griffith's The Musketeers of Pig Alley than looks forward to the gangster genre of the early thirties.
“Regeneration was shot on location in New York. Not the least of its charms are its many scenes of New York slums, the buildings and the streets as they appeared more than sixty years ago, and its picturesque cast of extras recruited from Manhattan's lower East side.” -Eileen Bowser, for FILMEX Program
