New Uploads at Media History Digital Library

Postby Rob Farr » Wed Dec 16, 2015 11:49 am

I'm helping the Media History Digital Library with their social media and so will be posting info about new uploads as they occur. In some cases the journal or book has been scanned and is on the Internet Archive, but a link from the MHDL site hasn't been made yet. Such is the case with this one:

Just uploaded! MGM Shorts Story, 1937-38. Short subject lovers will find much to enjoy in these MGM house organs. Our Gang, Robert Benchley, Pete Smith and the Harmon-Ising cartoons are all covered in depth. https://archive.org/details/mgmshortsstory1901metr

Recent upload! The Universal Weekly was a house organ that provided exhibitors with previews of upcoming features, B-westerns and shorts. The 1925-30 run will be invaluable for those doing research on the original and re-releases of Phantom of the Opera. Not to mention the production of King of Jazz.
