Moving Picture Ball sheet music. New upload

Unread post by Darren Nemeth » Sat Feb 24, 2018 8:49 pm

I just scanned and uploaded the complete music sheet for "The Moving Picture Ball" copyrighted in 1920." target="_blank

The scant scans I found on the internet are missing the last page which is an advertisement. And here you have it in color and downloadable 600 dpi as TIF files. All four pages combined are 460 megabytes and are raw scans with no touching up. :D

This was a popular tune that mentions Wallace Reid,Theda Bara, Alice Brady, Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Blanche Sweet, Adolph Zukor, Thomas Ince, William Fox, Jesse Lasky, William Hart, Olive Thomas, Pauline Frederick, Norma Talmadge, Sennett's Bathing Girls, Charlie Ray, Alla Nazimova, Fatty Arbuckle, and Dorothy Dalton.

On the cover are likenesses of Mary Pickford, Fatty Arbuckle, maybe Mabel Normand, and others.
