VITAPHONE FILMS

vitaphoneI picked up a great reference book over the weekend (at Ray Courts Hollywood Collector’s show at the Beverly Garland Hotel). VITAPHONE FILMS by Roy Liebman is a helluva reference work.It’s a 455 page reference book, with lots of great stills, cataloging every feature, short and cartoon released under the Vitaphone banner. Each film has a Vitaphone “release number” (which is not the same as Warner Bros. cartoon production numbers), release date and other data (for cartoons he includes a one-line plot synopsis).I’m still digging through the entries, but I just found a release number for a PHILBERT trailer and an ADVENTURES OF THE ROAD-RUNNER trailer. Who knows what else is in here?
