Thank you one and all who responded to my request for help. I have =
ordered my first "dose" of silents for our library. I have started with =
some that look to be more popular in hopes of getting people hooked and =
then leading them to some of the quality pieces. I will also take the =
suggestion of buying a couple of new books on the subject of silents and =
make a display when the videos arrive and are processed.
We are hoping to do a silent Film Festival of Harold Lloyd's material - =
I have a license for public showings - as we are about 20 miles from his =
birthplace. The group trying to restore his home are hoping to =
piggy-back on this to raise funds to match a grant they have - not by =
our charging admission.
Thanks again for the help,
