This is a surreal little movie by Billy Wilder's much-less talented older brother, W. Lee Wilder. It was originally released in a 1:85 aspect ratio. This is an attempt to recreate the original aspect ratio using the best public domain print I could find. The 16mm print seemed to be already slightly cropped and a true 1:85 ratio looked too cramped. This version has been blown-up and cropped at about 1:75, not the correct ratio, but much closer to the intended composition. Killers from Space...

The Giant of Metropolis is a mind-bending amalgam of Science Fiction, fantasy, sword and sandal, and general wackiness. Featuring American actor, Gordon Mitchell, and Cuban actress, Bella Cortez, the film has male and female beauty to satisfy most tastes. It features bizarre and minimalist sets, frequently combined with what appear to be hanging miniatures, colorfully lit in a style reminiscent of Mario Bava. Even the muscular musical score is similarly minimalist. I found the generational...

"Radio Ranch" is a condensation of the 12 chapter, 1935 Mascot serial, "Phantom Empire," which features Gene Autry in his first screen role as a singing cowboy. The 70-minute feature version was released in 1940. Copious plot permutations were lost in this condensed version, but what it lacks in coherence, it makes up for in fast-paced wackiness. This version is of higher visual quality than other copies here at the Internet Archive and elsewhere.

This Felix the Cat cartoon doesn't have much of a plot but rather is a series of random adventures starring our hero and a fox. It's a silent cartoon that had crude sound added after the fact by distributor Jacques Kopfstein. This cartoon looks to have been made earlier than 1929. It's no wonder that Disney and Fleischer made serious inroads into Felix's popularity.

Felix has numerous adventures with things that go bump in the night.

In this, considered to be the first Felix the Cat cartoon, Felix has yet to acquire his familiar name. He's called "Master Tom." In most other regards, the familiar personality is there, though not the casual surrealism that propels his later cartoons. Still, this cartoon is amusing with a surprisingly dark ending. This copy has public domain music (from piano roll) and sound effects added.

"Felix Woos Whoopee" is a surreal, silent 1928 Felix the Cat cartoon produced by Otto Messmer and Pat Sullivan. The post-synchronized sound was added in 1930 when the film distributed by Copley Pictures.

Another Felix the Cat silent cartoon with a fairly crude soundtrack added by distributor, Jacques Kopfstein. Candidate Felix promises the cats of earth a better life on Mars. (At least, that's how I decipher the plot!) It's stated on various websites that this cartoon was originally titled "Astromeows," probably a more sensible title, but I've never seen a print with that name. Perhaps that was the title of the silent version which got slightly scrambled when sound was added.
