• archive.org = lots of films

    From Ogg@VERT/CAPCITY2 to All on Sat Feb 24 18:46:00 2024
    I have been somewhat familiar with archive.org in the past, but
    by some seredipity/chance/fluke or whatever, I happened to look
    for classic hollywood films and discovered that there are quite
    lot available for download! I was particularily impressed with
    the colourized versions of some familiar classics. I liked
    that they even have a category for film noir (a favourite
    genre). Overall, the archive.org seems better and more
    organized since the last time I dropped by several years ago.

    The new series "Monsieur Spade" is making me want to go back and watch
    some of the old black and white noir films, especially The Big Sleep
    and the Maltese Falcon.

    There was a poll on Reddit about favorite Noir films. I had to throw in
    "Body Heat" as neo-noir.

    What archive.org is great at is storing stuff that is very hard to find from official sources.

    Stuff like Rock Odyssey, for example, which never got official theatrical releases and was aired once or twice in Europe. For years, it only survived in the tapes of home viewers who had bothered to record the TV broadcast when emitted. Now archive.org ensuers it is available.

    Where does Death To Smoochy fit in?
