It never fails; I go to make one change, and realize there's so much more that needs to be done. (And this doesn't even take into account the new design!)
Case in point: I finally got rid of the old News & Notes page, and have refashioned it to be a listing of all the articles that are in the News Archive, for easy finding (or just plain browsing and discovering something new!).
Anyways, I realized how out-of-date the pages are, particularly in terms of the navigation. But there are a lot of pages, and not enough time, so they'll have to get done as I get to them.
In the meantime, there is actually something very recent posted to the News & Notes
page! I have added a recent New York Times review of a new DVD put out by Flicker Alley: Perils of the New Land
, a look at early films set in New York City. The DVD includes two features, Traffic in Souls
and The Italian
, along with 5 shorts. The review is favorable, so it looks like something that should be of interest.
It's available through Amazon.com, and there's a link at the bottom of the article in the event you're interested and want to help support WTSM.
I have some other reviews and articles to post, but this week is crazy -- I'll try to get to them if not this week then this weekend.Updated: Bruce Calvert left a great comment, and I felt it was important to include it here:If you are interested in the latest news about silent films, check out the Silent Film News at the Nitrateville Forum. We have at least a dozen new articles every week on new discoveries, new restorations and new books. There's also another forum at the same site that lists all upcoming screenings of silent films, worldwide. (K: The link is Nitrateville)
