Greetings fellow inebriates,
Every year at this time we interrupt the flow of soused cinema reviews with a brief commercial for silent film preservation. Fifty percent of the films made before 1950 (including a number of alky-centric titles) are lost forever, and resources are limited to save those that remain. You can make a small contribution to aid the restoration of silent films by purchasing the 2012 Silent Movies Calendar.
Rodney Sauer of the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra produces this calendar each year, featuring rare film stills and photographs of silent movie stars contributed by fans. In addition to a dozen beautiful photos in glorious black and white, the calendar also features birthdays of silent-era film stars and personalities, as well as notable marriages, deaths, film openings, and other significant dates. Best of all, the net proceeds made from the sale of the calendars (after printing expenses) are donated to support silent film restoration. This year the profits will go to the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
The theme of the 2012 calendar is silent film stars with animals, including Tony the Wonder Horse, Rin Tin Tin, and various other dogs, cows, and geese. The price is just $14.74 ($12.00 plus shipping), so click on the link below to order yours today!
