What are the chances, I wonder, of Lantern getting "Hollywood Reporter?" It would be a great research tool.

The Hollywood Reporter is on our list for the future. Currently, for mainstream trade magazines, we're scanning Boxoffice, and then moving to The Exhibitor. This is all based on the availability of funding and copies of the magazines themselves. To scan the complete run of Hollywood Reporter would require more resources than we currently available.

The Hollywood Reporter doesn't have a full run of their magazine, they sometimes have to go to the Herrick to do research.

Interesting that they would visit the Herrick, 'cause when I lived in Los Angeles during the eighties, I would go to the Hollywood Library (Frances Goldwyn branch), and they had what appeared to be a complete run on microfilm. Maybe not the best quality in the world but no worse than what I'm seeing in the VARIETY or CLIPPER pages that are now online.

Curiously, that branch didn't have DAILY VARIETY; I'd have to go to the main branch downtown to scroll through that.

For whatever reason, some years ago I was looking into The Hollywood Reporter. As remarked there are missing volumes. I seem to remember the missing era was mid-1930s.

Some years ago the Rodgers & Hammerstein Library was restricting viewing of magazines and newspapers because people were cutting pieces out of them. Same happened in my city's main library in Australia. Bona Fide people(teachers, academics, university students) were the culprits. There is little or no replacement for disfigured pages. They did allow me to read volumes of one defunct city newspaper for which some good soul had made indexes that were available in full printed hardback form. Today that paper is online with a a clear type column down the side of the page which is handy for distorted original pages. Good to finding when certain films were screened and where i the 1930s and 40s.
