Fool’s Gold: a Dolaucothi Love Story

Poster e44b8a56cd-posterThought to have been lost, this forgotten treasure from the golden age of Welsh silent cinema was recently discovered, in a box of broken mine lamps, by Dolaucothi Gold Mines’ archivist and occasional tour guide ‘Seismic Sam’.

Made in 1927 and inspired by real events, as well as an outrageous mustache, “Fool’s Gold” tells the timeless tale of boy meets girl in a dimly lit mine passage amidst the backdrop of a bitter struggle for the control of the Dolaucothi Gold Mines and the keys to the Johne’s family fortune.

Directed by Simon Howlett (UK)
