  • On-line version of 'Kine Weekly'

    I've suggested that the British Newspaper Archive include Kine Weekly in their collection.

    It may be a long-shot, but if you like the idea you can support my suggestion here:

    https://help-and-advice.britishnewsp...tograph-weekly

    I looks like suggestions with 200+ votes are taken seriously.

        I've just bought 9 more 1961/1962 issues to add to the Archive.org collection - which means 12 issues in total for the new year, just in case nothing comes of the BNA petition.

            I've just snapped this up to add to the pile - it covers the post-war period of reconstruction and crisis 1946-52 . It's a bound volume of 250 plus pages so I'll probably have to photograph each page rather than scan.

                I've just been sent some rough scans of this document (for safety's sake before it gets sent to New Zealand) and so far it is an astoundingly detailed record of post-war reconstruction. It also lists films made in May-1945 to August-1946 by month and studio and current studio personnel.

                    I've hit a snag with issue 2787 - March 2 1961. The 'Greatest Show on Earth' poster has been removed - so I'm missing pages 17-20.

                    Uploaded as:

                    https://archive.org/details/kineweekly2787images

                    This will be trial version deleted after 30 days - fingers crossed I'll be able to post the full version eventually.


                    I've managed to find a photo of the poster, but still need pages 17 and 20, which according to the UEA index include:


                    Page 17 (missing)
                    Production News
                    Film - I’m In Charge (never finished UK)
                    Hylda Baker
                    Film - Cleopatra (1963 - USA)
                    Joseph L. Mankiewicz comments
                    Film - Tiara Tahiti (1962 - UK)
                    Film - Victim (1961 - UK)

                    Page 20 (missing)
                    Reviews of short film releases
                    Films
                    Kuku Nuts (1945 'The Fox and Crow' cartoon);No Biz Like Shoe Biz (1960 Hanna-Barbera Loopy De Loop cartoon); Assault and Mattery (‘Assault And Flattery’ – 1956 Popeye?); Here Kiddie Kiddie (1960 Hanna-Barbera Loopy De Loop cartoon); Wonderful Greece (19?? - ??)
                    Eros:
                    The History Of Inventions [La Storia Delle Invenzioni](1959 - ITL/UK); The Rivals (19?? - ??); H.M.S. Brave Swordsman [HMS Brave Swordsman](1961 - UK)


                    I'll probably just create space-holder pages unless someone out there can provide images.

                    (Before anyone mentions it I did know there is a copy currently on EBay in the UK)
