Cinematek Channel on Youtube with rare silent comedies

Hey Gang,

Cinematek has started its own Youtube Channel :

That already has some interesting goodies, including that Heinie and Louie that was on the European Gateway site (which is most likely HOOEY HEROES (1917)). There's also a Gale Henry/Billy Franey/MIlburn Morante Joker Comedy, a rare keystone, and an early Al Christie, with lots more to come. Enjoy!

Really enjoyed HER BIRTHDAY PRESENT. Is Henry Lehrman portraying a Jewish burglar?

Did you notice? dept.:
At the 7:35 minute mark of Hubby's Night Out (Christie 1917), copies of Moving Picture World can be seen on the newstand rack. Only 15 cents.

Trade Papers available to public?

I've wondered about that. Occasionally I've spotted "Motion Picture Herald"s or "Film Daily"s displayed at newsstands in old movies. And in one 1943 feature a copy of a Film Daily Yearbook is seen on a bookshelf in someone's home.
So...were publications such as these actually sold at newsstands and available to the general public? I figure the studio just rounded up whatever was around to use as props in newsstand scenes, figuring the viewers wouldn't notice.
