Classic Movies in Music Videos: “Dark of the Matinee”

I’m starting yet another new feature on “Comet” about actors and actresses, or anything classic film related, in music videos.

The video featured today is Franz Ferdinand’s 2004 song “The Dark of the Matinee” from their self titled first album.

The video doesn’t have a classic actor in it, but there are several old movie clips.

If I can tell correctly from the quick flashes of the videos, I think I spotted Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. it what looks like “Sinbad the Sailor” along with an old western and silent movie that I couldn’t determine. I think it may have been a Pearl White movie.

What movies did you pick out?
