Phil's Vintage 8mm, Super-8 and 16mm Films and Projectors

Updated January 14, 2020

*** If you need an 8mm Projector to show these films CLICK HERE ***

These films are for standard 8mm movie projectors or dual-8 movie projectors. Some of these titles are almost impossible to find in any guage but 8mm. All are in Like New to Mint condition unless noted otherwise. Vintage silent films running their true speed of 12 to 18 frames per second means 200' of 8mm film will run about 15 minutes. Most silent features run from under an hour to just over an hour. That is why many silent features are only 3 to 6 reels (200') long. Here is your chance to have many historic movies on film for little more than the cost of a video or DVD. All films are in cans or white boxes. If possible I'll list the manufacturer of the print. Older vintage Kodak or Dupont prints are desired for their excellent resolution, although quality can vary. All are very good or excellent picture quality unless noted. Remember many reels are full to the brim, so a 5 reel (5x200') feature may be on 2x400' reels.

  • THE BIRTH OF A NATION (2) - Epoch, 1915. D. W. Griffith landmark epic story of the civil war starring Lillian Gish. A controversial, explicitly racist, but landmark American film masterpiece. The domestic melodrama/epic originally premiered with the title The Clansman in February, 1915 in Los Angeles, California, but three months later was retitled with the present title at its world premiere in New York, to emphasize the birthing process of the US. Film scholars agree, however, that it is the single most important and key film of all time in American movie history. Supurb Mint Eastman or Kodak vintage Blackhawk Films print on 6x400' reels - $99
  • LORNA DOONE - First National, 1923. Starring Madge Bellamy and John Bowers. In 17th-century England, an outlaw clan kidnaps a young girl, who grows up among them.

  • STEAMBOAT BILL, JR. - 1928 Buster Keaton comedy. Following through on a promise to his mother, William Canning Jr. goes to River Junction to meet his father who has not seen him since he was a child. The younger Canning isn't quite what the elder was expecting but the old man has bigger problems. This film has moments where you won't believe his stunts weren't done via some nifty camera forgery. It's just amazing that his stunts were accomplished while one camera was aimed at a spot that was marked for Buster to hit. This precision had to be met or death and disaster could follow. This was most apparent in the cyclone scene with the wall of a house that fell to the ground. Any deviation by an inch from the mark and a house could fall on top of Buster's head. Good to fair quality, Near Mint 1973 Eastman print on 8x200' reels, all individually boxed - $69
  • TOL'ABLE DAVID (2) - First National Pictures, 1921. Starring Richard Barthelmess.

A superb piece of Americana, a great film that reproduces a long-lost time in America as well as long-last attitudes. Directed by Henry King.
