Any word on which ones? I know a Randolph Scott collection is coming from TCM, featuring a film I've been wanting for years. I think it's due out in December.

--"Gobs of Fun" (1933), a Vitaphone short with a previously unknown appearance by Shemp Howard
--A long-unseen Robert Benchley short, "Your Technocracy and Mine" (1933)---Universal struck a new 35mm print for this show!
--"Sharps and Flats," a nutty-funny Vitaphone short with Jimmy Conlin and Myrtle Glass---I've seen this one on video, and it's crazy!
--Rare fragments of early Technicolor, courtesy of the George Eastman House

A friend of ours tipped us off to this show, and it sounds great. There's a chance we might be able to go, but I'm not sure yet.
Thanks for the heads up. I wish I could be there and I hope you and Mr. get to go!

Ooh! Please keep us posted!

Kino is releasing a newly remastered DVD and Blu-ray of "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" in October. The preview/sample looks very good, better than other transfers I've seen! Considering the budget and the actors they had to work with, it's really not such a bad movie.

We're looking into the cost of getting there and back from Boston ... it's awfully expensive by either train or plane, so we may pass on it. Sounds like a really, really good show, though!

October 15, there's a listing for a Ronald Reagan set, Gary Cooper, & Barbara Stanwyck. Also on the first is a Val Lewton set. Odd that set is coming out by itself.

TCM is running a documentary called the Story of film: an odyssey
Looks interesting

That does sound interesting ... if it is less pretentious than its title!

Couldn't resist mentioning: Today is Buster Keaton's birthday.

I owe him a lot. The pluck and persistence of Johnny Grey in "The General" helped me to get through chemotherapy many years ago. "Choo-choo" became shorthand among my friends for "Hang in there."

I am ashamed to say I have not seen the General. I need to!
