Trivia

In September 1928, Warner Bros. Pictures purchased a majority interest in First National Pictures and from that point on, all "First National" productions were actually made under Warner Bros. control, even though the two companies continued to retain separate identities until the mid-1930's, after which time "A Warner Bros.-First National Picture" was often used.

Stop talking about movies you haven't seen!
8 September 2004 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I've seen this so many times on here: long-winded dissertations about movies that are supposedly lost (witness "London After Midnight!"). How can someone truly discuss something that doesn't even EXIST anymore? (Isn't that something akin to various religious groups prohibiting some movie because it's blasphemous, despite the fact that no one in that group has ever seen the movie?)

Three possible apologies are in order before the fact, though: 1. The previous commentator (the one who set me off on this) is old enough to HAVE seen the movie. 2. All the rest of us are wrong, and the movie IS extant (PLEASE tell us where to find it!!!) 3. Just an apology of my own, for having used this forum for a brief editorial.
