i’ll never understand the greediness of
micheal arick the dude that has the complete copy of a star is born in their collection but refuses to share it. collector’s that keep one of a kind things to themselves just to say they have it and no one else does are the worst people.
ugh god yes. Mostly half of Gloria Swanson’s filmography since the majority of her silents are lost, it hurts to even type that. specifically, Madame Sans Gene(wonderful film made in France), The Great Moment, What a Widow, Zaza, the last reel of Sadie Thompson, the list is sadly endless. For non Gloria movies I really wish the owner of the complete A Star is Born would release their copy. There are a few Norma Shearer silents I have yet to see. I’d love to see more of Colleen Moore’s work. Clara Bow has a couple of films like Rough House Rosie. Bessie Love, Anita Page, this is all off the top of my head but basically all of the great silent stars have a chunk missing. I still hold out hope since things are being discovered in recent years but with un-proper care and deterioration it’s not likely :(
me when thinkin’ about my favs
Thank you! <3
Oh thank you! It seemed like a really random set at first that people might not like but I’m glad you did. But i agree. It’s so interesting to me why costumers and set designers choose the colors they do because there is always a reason behind them.
