On December 12, 1927, the Oswald the Lucky Rabbit short film Empty Socks was released to theaters. It was the ninth Oswald film to be created, and was, until 2014, considered to be a lost film, with only a small fragment of the film in existence in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The film was donated by a private collector to the Norwegian Film Institute, with the archive of the Institute subsequently handed over to the National Library of Norway. The film, discovered with a copy of the other previously-lost film Tall Timber, was screened at the National Library on December 17, 2014.
