Dear Kris: I do not usually reply to the list at large but here is a film
from First Run/Icarus Films that I would recommend regarding videos on film
pre 1948. It is not specifically Hollywood oriented but might be useful as
a sidebar:

Forgotten Silver by Peter Jackson and starring Sam Neill (The Piano). An
insidiously funny yet utterly believeable "mockumentary" which uncovers the
life of Colin McKenzie, film pioneer in the early 1900's New Zealand.
Features film critic Leonard Maltin and Miramax chairman Harvey Weinstein.
53mins, color, 1995, $95.00
