A celebration of the first twenty five years of Screen Snapshots - a re release
10 August 2012 | by Stan16mmSee all my reviews

During the 1950's, Ralph Staub re released several of his films in this series from a financial point of view. However the footage wasn't available for viewing as easily as we can do today so sending the films out again to theaters was most welcome to audiences. As a bonus, Staub would film a few wrap around sequences to make the film seem fresh. In this case, he recalls the twenty fifth anniversary of the Screen Snapshots series, eight years later, for newcomer John Derek who asks to see these films which he was too young to view the first time around.

Stars seen from actual film sequences and off the set include the Hall Room Boys, Hobart Bosworth, Beverly Baine, Francis X. Bushman, Anita Stewart, Norma Talmadge, Hope Hamilton, Frank Clark, Jackie Coogan, as a child star, Clara Kimball Young, Lon Chaney,Sr., Douglas Fairbanks, Tom Mix, Jean Harlow, Leslie Howard, Fred Astaire, and Rosalind Russell. Cecil B. DeMille, Louella Parsons and Walt Disney film special remarks congratulating the series on its silver anniversary.

There is a section dedicated in tribute to the stars who have passed on including Charley Chase in rare private footage, Thelma Todd, Jean Harlow, Marie Dressler, John Barrymore and many more.

This ten minute film contains so many clips, it's amazing it fits into the short time frame. One hopes that a collection of this series will be made available to the public some day.
