Apologies to all visitors to this thread. I forgot to change the 'flickr' settings on the poster for *The Good, The Bad and The Ugly* before posting on Monday. This didn't allow one to access the larger versions. That problem has been rectified. Click away and view the poster in all it beautiful bigness.

Wow, that poster for A Woman's Face is really cool, somehow bridging thirties sophistication with a little forties noir. And boy, would I like to be at that screening to hear what the grandkids have to say!

As the Classic Film Festival is one week away, I better step it up.

Love the *Top Hat* poster, and *King Kong* is superb. You can't go wrong with legs and airplanes in the same poster. But I must say I find those disembodied heads in *Sunny Side Up* frightening. :-)

Thank you. I am glad to hear someone likes it. I thought it was one of the best *King Kong* posters I've ever seen online. (At least one that was available in a large format.)

Wow! Thanks so much for posting this. I didn't know that any of Clara Bow's *THREE WEEKENDS* or Colleen Moore's *HAPPINESS AHEAD* had survived. Not to mention THE PATRIOT. Are these the lone fragments, or are there more than what is being screened? Are they running the Technicolor clips from another Clara Bow feature *RED HAIR?* I think that's all that there is of this film that's ever been found.

I believe for "The Patriot" all that survives is the trailer (I've seen it). That probably is what they'll be showing.

 

But I WOULD be very interested to know what survives from "Happiness Ahead" and "Three Weekends".

Yeah, I've see the Trailer for *THE PATRIOT* too. This at least gives me a little bit of hope that they might be getting to one of those Colleen Moore films that have been sitting around, and sitting around for years.

 

Incidentally, I have confirmed information that a complete 35 Millimeter brint of *ORCHIDS AND ERMINE* resides at the British Film Institute. Technically though the film is not really public domain I don't believe. This despite several versions probably all dupes from the Kodascope that are floating around. Here are some notes from David Pierce, and an important link.

 

*"ELLA CINDERS and ORCHIDS AND ERMINE* were released in 16mm by the Kodascope Libraries, expertly condensed to 5 reels each. Both very high qulaity transfers.

 

Unlike *ELLA* though, *ORCHIDS AND ERMINE* also survives in the full-length 35mm release version, preserved long ago by the BFI National Film and Television Archive, and shown in Pordenone in 2002 as part of their FUNNY LADIES series."

Wow... this, to me, is the most interesting part of the entire festival. I'd dearly love to see that clip from The Village, as well as the others.

AMC ran the fragment of THE VILLAGE BLACKSMITH when they ran John Ford films during their Festival of Preservation about 8 or 9 years ago. What survives is the final reel of the film.

AMC also ran the existing fragment from Ford's MOTHER MACHREE (1928) as well.

Scottman,

 

Yes, but *THE LAST WARNING* is not a lost film. So that one has me a bit puzzled. It was in 1999 or 2000 that the old AMC ran the Ford Silents.

 

Did you see the link that confirmed *ORCHIDS IN ERMINE* survives in a complete 35 Millimeter print at the BFI? Besides *HAPPINESS AHEAD,* I wonder if there are any fragments of *"OH KAY!"* at all?

 

Also wanted to mention that Robert Israel and his Orchestra are scoring Harold Lloyd's *AN EASTERN WESTERNER* and *SAFETY LAST* live! I haven't heard Robert's score to *SAFETY LAST,* as Carl Davis Thames Silents score carried over to the New-Line/Warner Home Video DVD edition of the 2002 authorized Lloyd Trust version. Robert has played to the film several times in the past, but I don't think a recorded score has emerged.

Hey Jeffrey,

That's good news about ORCHIDS AND ERMINE. FYI, The silent film that the LA Chamber Orchestra will be accompanying this year at UCLA is THE CAMERAMAN (1928). Timothy Brock composed a new score for it and the orchestra will play it on May 23rd.

Wow, I love all five of those! Even Colleen Moore's head is captivating. As for *SITR* , I don't think I've ever seen so much going on in one poster. Thanks, Kyle.

Chief,

 

This is the first opportunity I have had this week to really look at this thread. The *Kong* poster and bonus ephemera is boffo! I also really like the *Sierra Madre* poster though the yellow background which I'm guessing is supposed to represent the "treasure" seems a tad over the top, especially with the faces in it.

 

The *Dirgible* poster makes me glad I tivo'd this one when it was on TCM so as not to miss it!

 

Thank you again for all your hard work on this gallery and the regular *Censored* gallery.
