Re: Cinevent Notes: THE NINTH GUEST (1934)

Sounds A-OK to me. I just sourced a copy.

Welcome Danger (29)

I noticed the silent version on the Cinefest list this year.

Re: Richard M.Roberts Banned from Nitrateville

I'm sure you're aware of my opinion of BK, so I'll not trouble you with it.

SHADOWS (59)

Does anybody know if the original 1957 version of Cassavetes film has been made publicly available? Here's a fascinating piece on the quest for and the eventual discovery of the ONLY known surviving print: http://people.bu.edu/rcarney/discoveries/shadowsquest.shtml Obviously, at the time, Gena Rowla...
