  1. I'm a big fan of LILLIAN GISH. She was an acting original and one of our greatest film stars, as well as a tireless champion of silent movies and their restoration (and she hailed from my home state of Ohio). My late cousin, a silent film collector and film historian, actually met her in the 1970s. I consider it a minor sin that her and her sister Dorothy's names were removed last spring from that theatre at Bowling Green State University. Anyway, I just learned that Gish wrote and directed a silent that was released almost 100 years ago: Remodeling Her Husband, starring Dorothy. The
  2. I tried to share this news the other day, but the link apparently didn't work? Anyway, We have confirmation now that EYE Institute of Film Netherlands in Amsterdam Holland has 6 reels of the long lost Colleen Moore feature OH KAY! (1928). Does not state "Complete" on the LOC Silent Film Survival Data Base, just mentions the 6 presumably in-tact reels. When I checked on the site back in December with regards to this title, the page still read "No Holdings In Any Archive". I knew this was incorrect, since I had heard about a chunk of OH KAY! having been discovered at least 2 or 3 years ago. Just
  3. Airing in Prime-time this evening. 8:00 PM/7:00 Central. Part of the fascinating Trail Blazing Women series. This has always been my favorite Mary Pickford feature. Produced and written (using Grandmother's name) by her. I have waited a long time to see this film properly restored. Hope the new musical score does the movie justice. ROONEY was also an important picture for William Haines. Helping to establish him as a major Star in his own right. No version of this film has aired on TCM in a decade. This restoration was only completed a few months ago by the Mary Pickford Foundation and Aca
  4. A Masterpiece of Silent Movie making from prolific director Frank Borzage. One of my favorites. Airing at 10:00 PM Eastern/9:00 PM Central! Don't miss it! First time on TCM since early 2011! Who knows when it will be shown again??? It's possible this could be the debut of the new 4k transfer that Fox was working on. Probably not. The last and only time previously that TCM aired this movie the transfer looked rather dark, dull and battered during many scenes. I know better quality materials exist, even before the new 4k restoration. Fabulous vintage Movie-tone score! Hopefully, they obtained be
  5. While I sincerely hope this will be a brand new restoration or print transfer, I'm not expecting that to be the case. To the best of my knowledge, no version of this film has been shown on TCM before. For that matter, it has only aired twice in two different versions on American TV in the past 38 years! Both telecast were on Public Television in 1978 and 1999 respectively. So please appreciate just how rare this broadcast airing at 8:00 PM Eastern/7:00 Central time truly is! Thank you TCM!
  6. Turner Entertainment/Warner Bros. is the legal distributor of any FBO/RKO movies between 1925 and 1930. This is a petition for Turner Entertainment/Warner Bros. to digitize the following Tom Tyler silent films he made for FBO between 1925 and 1929 and eventually make these movies available on DVD for consumer purchase. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/650/139/217/turner-entertainmentwarner-brothers-please-digitize-tom-tylers-surviving-fbo-silent-films/ Thank you!
  7. Wow a full evenings slate tomorrow with the original "King of Hollywood" Douglas Fairbanks Senior! Very impressed with the unexpected Prime-time TCM debut's and World Television Premiere's of THE GOOD BAD MAN with Bessie Love, and THE HALF-BREED with Alma Rubens! Both titles recently restored! In-fact, THE GOOD BAD MAN was restored just last year, and I am told looks pristine from those who have seen the movie at live screenings! Neither of these two extremely rare films have ever been released on home video in any format. In addition there is also a TCM Premiere of Fairbanks Two-Color Technic
  8. Finally at long last, a Colleen Moore movie on TCM! And in Prime-time to boot! Monday at 8:00 PM Eastern. 7:00 Central. I already have the Warner Archive disc of the formally long lost WHY BE GOOD? (1929) which was released about a month shy of a year ago. However, I'm very anxious to hear Leonard Maltin's opening and closing comments as he is guest host for the evening. I would have been interested to hear Bob's take just as well. The nifty film is a fast paced delight from start to finish! Great fun! Maybe even one of the first films I would show to Silent Film Newbies. A nice introduction t
  9. Exciting news broke just yesterday that the long lost Alice White Silent feature SHOW GIRL (1928) was being restored by Warner Brothers and the Vita-phone project. It is currently still listed on the Library of Congress Silent Movie Database as a Lost film. Or in any event, read's "No Holdings In Archives" So I'm not sure where this print came from? Nevertheless, this is a welcome surprise seemingly out of nowhere! I hope we might see it on TCM as soon as possible. Since it has a complete Vita-phone score already, additional music doesn't need to be recorded. Would be a great fit for TCM's spo
  10. Very surprised no one has mentioned this here. Colleen Moore's last Silent film the long lost WHY BE GOOD? (1929) has been added to the TCM Classic Film Festival schedule. I am so gratified to see this. I was hoping for maybe SYNTHETIC SIN or LILAC TIME since WHY BE GOOD? was released on DVD by Warner Archive late last October, while the other two are still not available. But at least it's a Colleen Moore film and as I have the DVD, it is Wonderful with a teriffic Vita-phone score. Print is outstanding quality. I hope this plays to a packed house. Though being scheduled for a 9:15 AM screening
  11. Saturday, September 6, 2014 | 7:30 pm LACMA, Bing Theater in Los Angeles California! There will be additional screenings coming up throughout the Fall around the country. http://www.lacma.org/event/why-be-good Why Be Good? Saturday, September 6, 2014 | 7:30 pm U.S. Restoration Premiere 1929, 90 minutes, black and white, DCP | Directed by William A. Seiter; written by Carey Wilson; with Colleen Moore, Neil Hamilton, Bodil Rosing, John Sainpolis, Edward Martindel, Eddie Clayton, Lincoln Stedman. In her final silent film, Colleen Moore plays a wild flapper with a dubious reputation, w
  12. Huge Breaking News from Ron Hutchinson at The Vitaphone Project! This update was just posted earlier this morning on his Facebook page. "I am happy to finally announce that Colleen Moore's last silent, WHY BE GOOD? (FN/'29) has been synchronized with my Vitaphone disks by Warner Bros, and will be screened at the end of this month at Il Cinema Ritrvato 2014 in Bologna, Italy! This film was consider lost for decades, when during an intro I was making at a Film Forum show, I casually mentioned that I acquired all the film's soundtrack disks. "It's not lost, I know where it is" yelled film histo
