8MM CLASSIC SILENT FILM FEATURES
Updated July 15, 2014

*** 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.

bulletTHE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARY - 1920 horror feature starring Werner Krauss and Conrad Veidt. Francis, a young man, recalls the horrible experiences he and his fiancée Jane recently went through.

bulletTHE BIRTH OF A NATION (3) - SYNOPSIS Epoch, 1915. D. W. Griffith landmark epic story of the civil war starring Lillian Gish.
