The Dream of Mrs L.L. Nicholson from Oakland, California (1924)

In 1924 California's Tribune-American newspaper ran a competition for its readers to write in with their most unusual dreams and the winning entry was made into a short film. This is Mrs L.L. Nicholson from Oakland's dream of losing her baby, rowing across San Francisco Bay, picking up some fish, and eventually discovering her lost child in a most unusual place and in trouble with the law.

Internet Archive user "kingwaylon" has added a nice homemade soundtrack to this version here.
