Re: Nitrateville Answer Dept: Marceline Day Silents

Thanks, Richard! Since I wrote the original question (which was emailed to me), I found that Paul's Mack Sennett restorations for TCM and DVD included Black Oxfords.

Re: Nitrateville Answer Dept: Billie Reeves

I've got A Day on the Force, but my 16mm print is not from Blackhawk as it has a music score (which Blackhawk didn't offer). It's quite funny. I screened it at one of our Dallas-area movie group showings a few months ago and it went over pretty big.

They were showing Canadian themed movies yesterday because it was "Canada Day". I'm sorry I missed this one.

Re: Richard M.Roberts Banned from Nitrateville

I promise I'll write you a mostly glowing review on Amazon when I get around to reading your book sometime next year. I can't give it five stars because some of your pictures are fuzzy-looking.

Re: Richard M.Roberts Banned from Nitrateville

Richard, I really, really want to read your new book, but you and Practical Press are such mean and greedy people for making it soooo expensive. Not everybody can earn the big bucks like all you archivists do. Please send me my free copy, thanks.
