Four years before Czech director Gustav Machaty produced "Ecstasy" ["Ekstase"] [1933] [ http://www.archive.org/details/Ekstase1933 ], "Seduction" ["Erotikon"] hit the screens. IMDb reviewer ackstasis wrote... 'Erotikon (1929)' was released just as the arrival of "talkies" was stifling (at least temporarily) the artistry out of cinema, and it's one of the most lusciously-photographed films of its era. Czech director Gustav Machaty blends...

This print is much sharper and cleaner than the existing IA copies. Another outstanding suspense thriller from Hitchcock's British years. If it isn't as popular as "The 39 Steps" or "The Lady Vanishes," it's probably because it's mounted on a smaller scale than those well-known classics. It also has a plot element some audiences found disturbing. Based on Joseph Conrad's novel, "The Secret Agent." Directed by Alfred Hitchcock. UK release 1936. US release 1937....

This is a typical sex exploitation film from the early 1930s - complete with wild parties, sex out of wedlock, lesbianism, etc. A chorus girl's exposure to the "casting couch" also exposes her to syphilis. Exploitation filmmakers hoped to capitalize on the taboo subjects of venereal disease, sex before marriage, lesbianism, etc. while skirting the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930 which forbade a film from containing such content. Films like this would tour the United States for...

Weird, funny, brutal, and twisted, three children of the Merrye family live under the care and protection of their chauffeur, Bruno, played by Lon Chaney, Jr. The "children" are afflicted with "Merrye" syndrome, a form of dementia caused by inbreeding. It's a "made for drive-in's" kind of movie, that will have you laughing and saying, "ooh, gross," at the same time. The music is perfectly tacky and well suited for this film.

Strike was directed in 1925 by Sergai Eisenstein. It was Esienstein's first feature film and an indicator of the brilliant films t follow. As with other Communist films of this period, the workers in general are the heroes. The composition and editing are spectacular, particularly with the scenes as the troop raid the apartment buildings, and the conclusion where the killing of the workers is intercut with the slaughter of cattle.

Spoiler alert: the good guys win, and the bad guys lose. The video is pretty sharp; and I cleaned up the audio. Good show. Written by Richard Sale; and directed by Lewis Allen.

Sally Rand stars as a nightclub performer whose police detective father is murdered. She determines to use her wiles to identify the killer, and see him brought to justice. The source for this upload can be found elsewhere on archive.org. There was a lot of noise, which made it almost intolerable to watch. I cleaned up the audio and decided to share it back to this site. The audio portion of Sally Rand's bubble dance was too poor to be recovered. It was a medley, beginning with a portion of...
