The Golden Age of Hollywood

Hi everyone,

I like collecting lobby cards. My girlfriend was on ebay and found what she thought was a lobby card of the Road to Utopia movie. When I looked at it, it was not a lobby card at all but rather a 16mm print of the movie. I did not bid on it but this got the wheels spinning about how fun it might be to watch a movie on a projector from an old print. Does anyone else do this? Does anyone have any good sources for movies or a projector? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Matt

Thanks guys. I do subscribe to "Classic Images" already. There are about 6 pages of people selling 16mm movies in each issue. Usually only 1 or 2 have websites. Most just give a phone number, and you are right, they are expensive, and I don't even have a projector yet. I did find a page on Facebook that looks to have more reasonable prices: "16mm Film Swap 'n Sell". I think I might actually look around for a projector and see what I can find. If I make any movement on actually doing this I will report back and let you all know how it goes. Thanks!

If you can get your hands on a copy of the quaterly magazine called "Films of the Golden Age" or their monthly sister mag called "Classic Images" there are always people listing movies and projectors etc. in the ads or the classified section. Good luck on your search. As much fun as I think that would be as a hobby I also think it would be expensive and I'm not sure I would want to go back to old rickety, noisy projectors. I really like my Blu-Rays and DVDs! :)

Affairs of the Heart: The Wedding Night (1935)

To view The Wedding Night click here. The Wedding Night was doomed from the start. It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]

Murnau and the Phantoms of Germany

To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
