104th_Street_curve.mpg
104TH STREET CURVE (1899) B&W SILENT (THOMAS A. EDISON)301 viewsFrom Edison films catalog: Taken from the front platform of a special train run backward over the celebrated S curve. Not only are the passing trains and crowded platforms of great interest, but the view of up-town New York is an excellent one, showing acre upon acre of roofs, towers, steeples and towering apartment houses. As the "special" slows up at 92nd Street, a Harlem express dashes by, the engineer leaning out of his cab.

SUNBEAM BREAD COMMERCIAL REEL 5 (1950'S) B&W SOUND107 viewsCommercial featuring a kid who looks somewhat like Alfalfa from 'Our Gang' dressed in cowboy drag lassos a loaf of white bread right out the kitchen and makes goofy poses while pointing to the picture of Gene Autry on the package, he then runs into the house with the bread and almost uses the bread as a pillow while posing. Quite funny actually, Highly reccomended!
afro_mood_amelia_aquilar.wmv
AFRO MOOD BURLESQUE1645 viewsA burlesque short starring Amalia Aguilar. Part of "Joe Bonica presents the Movie of the Month" nudie film series. As far as the term "Afro" in the title, sometimes Latin music is refered to as "Afro-Cuban" music, as a major portion of its origins are from Africa.

TRAPEZE DISROBING ACT1209 viewsProduced in 1901 by Thomas Edison (And you thought all he was interested in was a light bulb). The Camera is positioned as if in the audience at a vaudeville or burlesque show. Two men with long hair and beards in rough clothing appear to be eating and talking in a box on the left as a female aerialist sits on a trapeze over the stage and its painted backdrop of trees. Fully dressed in street clothing, the trapezist removes her jacket and hat before performing a flip. She stands to remove her skirt and then sits back down on the bar as she takes off her corset and throws it to the country bumpkins in the box, who fight over the undergarment. The trapezist continues to disrobe, removing her shoes, stockings, and garters, again throwing the latter to the men, and then seemingly hangs upside down (with her feet anchored off-camera) as she slips off her petticoat. Thus clad only in tights, trunks, and a camisole, the woman performs her trapeze act to the increasingly excited men.

GIVE ME LIBERTY (1936) COLOR SOUND577 viewsGeorge Washington tries to encourage gifted orator Patrick Henry to use his considerable powers to argue the case for colonial independence before the Virginia House of Burgesses, but the lawmaker's promise to his wife initially deters him. When the political climate changes, she eventually gives her consent, and Henry delivers his rousing "Give Me Liberty" speech to an enthusiastic legislature.

GERTIE THE DINOSAUR (1914) B&W SILENT274 viewsThis is an odd little film featuring Winsor McCay--the creator of Gertie the Dinosaur and Little Nemo. And, just as in his first Little Nemo film, much of this film features Winsor McCay with his friends (all animators and lovers of animation) and only in the second half do you get to see Gertie. Ostensively, the film is about a bet Winsor made with his friends that he can make a dinosaur come to life--and he does in the form of a short cartoon featuring the lovable character "Gertie". While Gertie is very crude and simple compared to later color cartoons, there is still a lot of charm in the character and the film is a wonderful time capsule. Of great importance to Cinephiles and lovers of early animation.

CHERRY KNIGHT2501 viewsThis lady was one of the most successful models
and dancers of the 1940s and 1950s, with a national following. Her pictures are STILL being posted today on news groups and fan sites. The film is a fair example of her enduring appeal.
She is far from physically perfect, but it is her
earthy human quality that makes her timeless.
