Re: WHITE GOLD (27) fixed up digitally on Blu-ray

Grapevine mentions that the score for this Blu-ray was done by Jack Hardy and if you previously purchased the DVD from them, there may be a discount on getting the new Blu -ray version.

Re: Pending releases from Flicker Alley

Thanks for posting your thoughts on Gladbach score done for this rerelease.

Glad to hear I am not the only one that thought it was spectacular, especially when I saw it live with orchestra accompaniment is Seattle last year.

Re: WHITE GOLD (27) fixed up digitally on Blu-ray

This is good news since the black and white (non tinted version) that has been available on DVD -R was very dark, grainy, with a lot of scratches in parts. This version appeared to be from a 16 mm print that had been projected a few times over the years. I included a snip tool of the version that th...

Re: Database for existing nitrate film locations?

OF course, since UCLA doesn't have every film made donated to their archive, the film format material of what they do have in their archive is listed in their catalog.

Re: More film snippets to identify (from online article)

Doesn't George Eastman Museum have a 35 mm print of this film?

Does a Trailer from a 16 mm print exist on the DVD-R Sunrise Silents a 2006 Edition of the White Sisters (1923)?

would be great to see the whole film.

Re: New trove of films just found

The humidity alone with sealed metal film cans may not yield the best outcome (Mumbai humidity is rough), but hoping for the best and some rare silents. Some of these could be films made in India (pre-Bolllywood) and not at all Hollywood films?

Hmm , I wonder if the score would have some hint of early 19th century music or a bit more modern themed?

Re: Pending releases from Flicker Alley

Flicker's latest release is Gladbach's score from 2016 which was probably even better with the live accompaniment and since I don't have this version on DVD, I am not sure if it's studio based scoring or with the orchestra I mentioned. I enjoyed it none the less and was one of the better live scores...

Little Caesar, If you get a chance to watch and listen to the latest version of Little Annie Rooney that was recently rereleased by the Mary Pickford Foundation with the score done by Andy Gladbach and a 16 piece orchestra you will be impressed.

Re: NFPF Places Soft Shoes (1925) online

Great to see this archive continuing to discover and restore films. If you get a chance to visit the undergrad library at UCLA, they have on VHS The Man From Red Gulch 1925 which is also a Stromberg production at the same time as Soft Shoes. Carey was at his best in the mid 20's in these films.

I did see that Wiener Kuntsfilm was the first Austrian Silent Film production company founded 1/1910 in Vienna. Wikipedia has a list of their early silent dramas under "Wiener Kunstsfilm". If you can translate the frame from German to English, perhaps the frame will match the genre or give some indi...
