HER FIRST KISS (1919) Fox Sunshine Comedy

Again, transferred to damn slow, but here's a Sunshine Comedy with Slim Summerville and Ethel Teare:

It's getting pretty bad when the Library of Congress is transferring films like MOONLIGHT NIGHTS , a poor little 1925 Rayart Comedy that needs all the help it can get at 16 comedy-killing frames per second. I though Rob Stone and gang over there knew better than that:

Sad.

Please note that the website being sourced is the National Film Preservation Foundation and NOT the Library of Congress. Transfers on the NFPF site are done by the NFPF and not by LC.

Department stores no longer have cannon and missile departments. Homemade doughnuts, fresh milk and eggs from your own cows and chickens. Different times indeed.

I recognised Tom Kennedy in the Restaurant scene.

That's interesting, because when I wrote and complained to Annette Melville at the NFPF, she told me that the film speed decisions were made by the Archives, not the NFPF. Just where is this buck gonna stop?
