SF Silent Film Festival

I just saw a banner on "The Silent Era" website that advertised the SFSFF for May 29- June 1.

So, have they decided not to have it in July because it it no fun if they aren't practally on top of Slapsticon, or is it just fun now to chase Cinevent in Ohio?

Re: Nitrateville Correction Dept: Noah Beery Sr.

So many bonehead film buffs who don’t know better have this idea of “stardom” that only existed in the minds of those who read tinseltown screen mags and think everyone lived in Beverly Hills mansions until their careers “nosedived”, then they became drunken derelicts on skid row. The average lifes...

Re: CineMuseum, Flicker Alley, and Mack Sennett

Paul,
I am glad that you made the right connection.
Flicker Alley seems like good guys as far as getting the classics out there.

I am so happy that you have this on the right track.
Hopefully sales will be great and this will snowball in your direction !

Re: Richard M.Roberts Banned from Nitrateville

I'll take a free copy also, Richard. In fact, toss in a couple of extra books. I'll give them away as xmas gifts. My friends know what a big spender I am. Well, I might have joined the bandwagon here save for the promise of scantilly-clad Max Davidson & Spec O'Donnell. Thoes cheesekake shots al...
