I was fortunate to see this rarity on the big screen at the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, back in early 1987, on a double bill supporting the 1928 Russian Revolution potboiler 'The Red Dance', directed by Raoul Walsh (if my memory is correct, the program was presented by historian William K. Everson, during his regular annual visit to the theater).

'The Land Beyond the Sunset' is an early (1912) one-reeler about an underprivileged orphan who finds peace of mind at a charity picnic. The film is short and sweet, with an eloquent ending completely out of character for the usually prosaic Edison studios.
