Re: Who are you? (Formal introductions)

I assume many know me already but for those who don't my name is Annichen, I'm from Norway and I run Al St. John's estate and archive, track down and restore his movies and research his history. That means in all good time there will be a biography, I have worked on that for many many years and I co...

Re: Happy 10th Birthday, NitrateVille!

Wow...time goes by quickly when you're working hard :D But then again Nitrateville have become such a wealth of information and contacts it seems like the forum have been around for much longer.

Re: Has Criterion given up on silent comedy Blu-ray?

Perhaps I'm spoiled by Kino putting out all of the Keatons on Blu-ray in fairly quick order. Criterion has the Chaplin and Lloyd license yet the releases of these comedians have trickled to a stop. Has solid media become too passe? Did the Chaplin and LLoyd features not sell? Unless I missed someth...
