Okay, I'm not done yet, but here is a little f/x fun.
Note that the one thing definitely missing is the exhaust flame.
For those who have never seen this film there is one shot in it that I think is awesome. It's a shot of the ship going upwards into the distance and it's very quick where all you see is essentially the exhaust flame as the ship rises like a bat outta hell. Pretty damn cool for a silent film.
