*** If you need an 8mm Projector to show these films CLICK HERE ***

These films are for standard 8mm movie projectors or dual-8 movie projectors. Some of these titles are almost impossible to find in any guage but 8mm. All are in Like New to Mint condition unless noted otherwise. Vintage silent films running their true speed of 12 to 18 frames per second means 200' of 8mm film will run about 15 minutes. Most silent features run from under an hour to just over an hour. That is why many silent features are only 3 to 6 reels (200') long. Here is your chance to have many historic movies on film for little more than the cost of a video or DVD. All films are in cans or white boxes. If possible I'll list the manufacturer of the print. Older vintage Kodak or Dupont prints are desired for their excellent resolution, although quality can vary. All are very good or excellent picture quality unless noted. Remember many reels are full to the brim, so a 5 reel (5x200') feature may be on 2x400' reels.

The will is read and it turns out that Annabelle West, the only heir with his name left, inherits, if she is deemed sane. If she isn't, the money and some diamonds go to someone else, whose name is in a sealed envelope. Before he can reveal the identity of her successor to Annabelle, Mr. Crosby, the lawyer, disappears.

  • THE BIRTH OF A NATION (2) - Epoch, 1915. D. W. Griffith landmark epic story of the civil war starring Lillian Gish. A controversial, explicitly racist, but landmark American film masterpiece.

Film scholars agree, however, that it is the single most important and key film of all time in American movie history.
