CAPTAIL CELLULOID VS. THE FILM PIRATES

A silent four chapter serial made in 1969 in the flavor of the classic Republic serials of the 1940's. The complete uncut negative of Eric von Stroheim's "Greed" is discovered. The Master Duper, the supreme film pirate, is out to swipe it and sell copies to film collectors. Captain Celluloid, guardian of rare movie treasures, is committed to thwarting this crime.

CapCell2.jpg (14292 bytes)

This is a wonderful homage to those classic cliff-hangers and is actually better than the latter day Republic offerings. Produced by cinematographer Lou MacMahon. Stars Robert Clayton and film historians William K. Everson and Alan G. Barbour. I have extra prints of chapters 1 and 4, so those are avaliable individually. Chapter 3 is available in the complete set of 4 chapters in sound only, however sound prints are the same as the silent prints and can be run on silent projectors.
