(I believe the artists are The High Hatters, misspelled on youtube)
This piece is called the ‘Bigamist Bitch.’ Inside the locket, features my two favourite historical hotties: Doe-eyed Buster, and enigmatic Bela.

“This shot is the most expensive shot in silent film history. It was filmed in a single take, that had to be perfect, with a real train and a ‘dummy’ engineer (notice the white arm hanging out the conductors window). Some of the locals who came to watch the filming, thought the dummy was a real person and screamed in horror; supposedly, one person even fainted.”
