Is he carrying prayer beads when talking to the large group of people? What's that in his right hand?

I feel for sure it is prayer beads.

And yes is wonderful to be able to see this short film, but for me is a sad second place to being able to speak/ask questions of the Master direct to His face.
What a blessing that must have been.

In the past I believe the film was only shown on rare occasions...

"Verily, thou hast seen the physical picture of Abdul-Baha printed by the rays of the phenomenal sun (i. e., his photograph) and thine eyes became overflowing with tears. Beg thou of God that He may show unto thee his (Abdul-Baha's) spiritual picture printed by the ray shining forth from the Merciful Kingdom. Then the attractions of God shall overtake thee and make thee as a spark of fire aflame with the heat of the love of God."

~ Abdu'l-Baha, Tablets of Abdu'l-Baha v3, p. 714

I viewed this video of Abdu'l-Baha today for the first time today:

Rare Silent Short Movie of 'Abdu'l-Baha in New York, 1912 - YouTube

It's fascinating that I can watch one of the central figures of the Baha'i Faith on video! In the video above, he's getting his picture taken, pacing back and forth while talking to his Persian entourage, and holding children. Absolutely fascinating!
Most Great Video of Abdul Baha. Thank you for posting.
