Where to purchase one or two reeler short subject sound movies or get info re: packages they are in?

-------------

Movies like THE SONG WRITERS' REVUE (1930) are hard to find for purchase.

Short movies, one and two reeler short subjects from early sound days, are hard to sell, it seems. Some may be available in packages (groups of 10 short movies sold together using one "umbrella" title), but it's hard, often, to learn WHICH package with what "umbrella" title a particular hard to get movie is in.

I saw a fragment of THE SONG WRITERS' REVUE (1930) part of Hollywood REVUE OF 1929 which is available from most large video vendors. Great to see Arthur Freed in 1930.....one of the legends of Hollywood/ MGM music producer history.

Young, very unassuming looking guy....in 1930. Didn't look like a mogul at all, yet!

Anyone know where to get these, and maybe more useful, where information can be gotten identifying PACKAGE videos the single one or two reeler short subject sound movies may be in?

Let me know.

I'm David Allen. Email me at DavidAllenUSA@Yahoo.Com.

Thanks.
