10th_u_s_Infantry.mpg
10TH U.S. INFANTRY (1898) B&W SILENT (THOMAS A. EDISON)106 viewsFrom Edison films "war extra" catalog: Hurrah--here they come! Hot, dusty, grim and determined! Real soldiers, every inch of them! No gold lace and chalked belts and shoulder straps, but fully equipped in full marching order: blankets, guns, knapsacks and canteens. Train is in the background. Crowds of curious bystanders; comical looking [Afro-American] "dude" with a sun- umbrella strolls languidly in the foreground, and you almost hear that "yaller dog" bark. Small boys in abundance. The column marches in fours and passes through the front of the picture. More small boys--all colors. The picture is excellent in outline and full of vigorous life.

The relentlessly cheerful narrator says how this boy is "ready for the bunkhouse" until disembodied hands tempt the boy with Sunbeam bread.

reg_kehoe_marimba_queens.wmv
REG KEHOE AND THE MARIMBA QUEENS158 viewsThere's something about this clip that is almost surreal--The grainy black and white images, the sameness of most of the performers (all quite thin and "brunette" as they said back then, with the exception of the marimba player at Reg's right hand) and most of all the music. The Marimba Queens and Reg Kehoe would be so surprised to see themselves on the Internet. They recorded about 20 musical pieces, a couple of comedy skits and a radio broadcast interview in the 40's. That kool kat playing the bass was none other than the one and only Frank DeNunzio Sr. of Hersey,Pa.He played his stand bass.

GERTIE THE DINOSAUR (1914) B&W SILENT279 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 KNIGHT2511 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.
