US 1920s Film Magazines Online

UPDATE Aug. 16, 2011 ! Unless I’m mistaken and my VPN isn’t what it’s cracked up to be, those magazines below cannot be accessed anymore through the GoogleBooks service. Seems in the transition to Google eBooks loads of copyright issues have surfaced and are barring even preview of those long-past published magazines. Sigh.


There’s some hope and consolation, however, in the effort currently underway at Prelinger’s to digitize film magazines (back in may this year I blogged about this fantastic effort) : this is the link to the feed where you can see all the recent additions to their growing collection.
