Since it's Labor Day and nothing going on but rest, how about a few more?

Have to say Louie, Hot for Paris is a double treat. I don't think I have seen Victor McLagen looking that happy - not even after his big fight with Sean Thornton in "The Quiet Man" was he smiling that way! And all directed by Raoul Walsh !!!!!!!

I wonder what a glass slide for Murnau's Nosferatu looks like?
Just thinking out loud...

Seeing Alan Hale so young on Sailor's Holiday is a real treat.

Great job on those scans.  There is some really spectacular imagery there.  Thanks a lot for sharing those and keep 'em coming if you don't mind!

Not quite as crisp and clean as Louie's scans, but I came across this one that would be amazing to see in ultra sharp clarity.

OK, a few more:













and here's Bogie getting an early mention:



Rosa, Hot For Paris is one of my MOST WANTED lost films. It got great reviews, did well at the box office, and was VERY pre-code. Unfortunately, the last copies probably burned up in the 1937 fire which destroyed many early Fox talkies. And yes, Vic smiles a lot throughout the film, especially when in the arms of Fifi D'orsay:

This is a great way to view these fantastic images Louie. Are these designs only found on slides or were they in paper format as well e.g. title cards?

Although I am no expert on these, I believe the ones up until the late 30's were usually unique images. I have some from the late 30's/early 40's which appear to be "ad cuts" from the pressbook just colored.

These look like the color might have been hand painted directly onto the glass.  Can you tell if that is true?

Interesting.  The color on the original image was definitely hand painted and not stenciled.   I wonder how the color was transferred onto the glass?

Mike, here's a link from LAMP, explaining (in a nutshell version), how these were made. From Ed's write up, it sounds as tho the color was applied by hand.

'Tis a good write up, too!  clap clap

Thanks Louie, good to learn more about both Bogart ( that early mention must be one of the very first ones.. must google it!)  and thanks for the info " Hot For Paris ". Didnt know it was a lost film. It makes your glass slide more special.

I have a soft spot for Victor McLagen, thanks to John Ford he is like family to me   :P

Unfortunately the glass slides are in storage in New Orleans with the majority of my goodies, posters that is.  Ones I have are SVENGALI, INVISIBLE GHOST, HUMAN MONSTER, and MAN WITH NINE LIVES.

Would love to get more but those in my genre don't come up often and when they do, my wallet faint2.gif.  In a parallel universe I'd collect everthing, especially silent stone lithos.  Love that stuff.

Wonderful examples you have there Louie.  Now do I collect glass slides? Curiously enough, I have even been known to give Magic Lantern lectures!



Although my Victorian/Edwardian slides tend to keep clear of the dear old cinematograph and tend to look rather more like this...
