Looking for LIghts of New York from 1928

5 posts in this topic

:0 As of this time, there is no major video release of the film. The only way to get a copy would be if TCM airs the film and you can record it. Or, some film collector who may have transfered a print to a DVD. This is a tough request, in that you'll have to risk getting your hands on what would essentially be a bootleg copy. The film is in fact, one of the very few of its kind from the early "sound era" to remain in tact or no footage having been lost. The reason for this may likely be the lenght of the film at only 57 minutes. There's no doubt that this movie is techincally terrible or one that isn't specifically well performed on a level of reality. Still, it is an interesting and important historical piece of Hollywood.

My favorite part is the musical number where they play the "National Emblem" march Charlston style!
