_Materials from Paramount's "Belle Of The Nineties" (1934) before Title Change_

 

Copy of ItAintNoSinWC_LRG

Window Card Poster

 

Originally titled *It Ain't No Sin*, the title was changed at the last minute to *Belle Of The Nineties* in order to avoid running afoul with the Hays Office and the Motion Picture Code even though all the publicity campaign materials had been prepared.

Mae West shows off the new, smaller sound camera used on *It Ain't No Sin* and which will be used on all future Paramount Productions. The older camera used prior to the introduction of the new technology is on the left.

*"Quick, please, somebody invent a time machine. There aren't many things I'd like more than to walk into one of those theaters and watch the show."* - DougieB

 

*"That set up for Wonder Bar looks awesome!"* - JackFavell

 

So, even though the series hasn't focused on studio/exhibitor publicity at all and only tangentially on "movie palaces", you both approve of my including these images in the Gallery? If so, that's good as I have something else that wasn't a part of the series planned for posting soon.

Regarding the two sound cameras, the large one on the left is probably a regular Mitchell, hidden inside a large home-made ?blimp?, which was an early sound-proofing case that was placed over a noisy old silent film camera, to silence it, so its grinding sound would not be picked up by the new sound microphones.

 

The camera on the right is a new design that is called ?self blimped?, which means the sound-proofing material and case was custom-designed around a new camera design.

 

If you listen to some early 1929 and 1930 sound films, during the close-ups you can hear the camera grinding away. It was making so much noise, the microphone picked up the noise.

_Walt Disney Productions for United Artists_

 

"In 1931, production costs on Walt Disney's animated shorts had risen from $5,400 to $13,500 per cartoon. Columbia, who had advanced Disney the money to make each short for several years, backed out when the costs began to skyrocket due to Disney's desire to improve his product more and more. In stepped United Artists, who gave Disney a highly favorable distribution deal. This left him to concentrate on the production of his cartoons."

_Walt Disney Productions for United Artists_

 

"In the summer of 1932, Disney changed distributors of his cartoon shorts from Columbia Studio to United Artists Studios, who were willing to advance more money in the production of his shorts. While the Columbia posters were two color, the UA posters were vibrant colors, done in the stone lithograph process."

*"Between the Disney posters and the personality posters, this has been one giant feast for the eyes!"* - Scottman

 

By "giant", I'm guessing you like the larger versions available, huh? Good. It's nice to know they are popular.

 

Thanks for letting me know.

Sadly, Paramount Promotional Materials are pretty slim pickings in general and particularly in terms of Carole Lombard items - save for photographs.

_RKO's Short Subject Film in the "New" 3-Strip Technicolor (1934)_

(3-Sheet Poster)

 

"This is one of the cornerstone historical posters of the motion picture industry. It is rare enough just in itself; it's a one sheet for a 21-minute short subject film. But the interest lies in the fact that this was the first film to be shot 'entirely' in the three strip Technicolor process. This film won an Oscar for Best Short Subject - Comedy."

_"Fight" FIlms_

 

From the turn of the Century through the Sixties, it was common for championship boxing matches to be filmed and then shown in theaters across the country. The participants might change, but the posters for a "fight" or a "fight film" typically had a similar style. So much so that it was referenced in a poster for a studio film.

 

LouisBoxingPoster1937

(1937)

In 1936, Heavyweight Champion Joe Louis had defeated all comers and thought very little of former champ Max Schmeling of Germany. After lax preparation for the fight, Louis found himself the victim of a crushing right hand to the jaw that secured the title for Schmeling and Nazi Germany. The stage was now set for the re-match, a fight that would have far-reaching implications as World War II loomed. This poster for the motion picture of the fight features both fighters as they appeared in their prime.
