The Library of Congress needs our help and since they do so much for film preservation, it’s only fair that fans of classic cinema would pitch in. What do they need? Our braaaaaaaains!
More specifically, our knowledge of cinema. You see, there are some stills that need identifying and we’ve been asked to help. These are both silents and talkies. I know my readers are absolute wizards at this sort of thing so I am looking forward to seeing you in action. (Not the header image, obviously. We all know who that is.)
You can either leave a comment here or on the Library of Congress’s blog post. If you would like to comment here, these are the ground rules:
- Don’t be shy! There are no wrong answers. Type any names or titles that come to mind. Even if your comments do not identify the still, they may jog someone else’s memory.
- Think outside the box. Some images may not be from American films.
- Have fun!
Ready? Let’s go!
Update: The LoC has labeled the above still solved! It’s Josephine Dunn. Thanks, madfashionista!
One last thing: let’s have a nice round of applause for our friendly national archivists at the LoC.
