VINTAGE 8MM SILENT CASTLE FILMS

This Page Updated February 17, 2020

Castle Films were manufactured and sold to the home market from 1937 to the middle 1970's. Feature titles are 9 minute excerpts from the full feature. They set the standard for professional editing and high quality in home movies. The prints here are mostly from the 1940's to 1960's. Films not in original boxes will be in cans or Miniature Movie Classics boxes. All are Complete Editions, 200' films on a 5" reel (unless noted as 50' Headline Editions)). A number in brackets ( ) next to a title indicates that I have more than one print of that title.
