This week at the SFPL


Three interlibrary loans arrived this week. And so I spent an enjoyable morning - some two hours of time and some seven dollars for photocopies - going through microfilm at the SFPL. . . . I looked through a few months worth of the Toronto Globe & Mail, where I found film reviews of The American Venus (1926) and A Social Celebrity (1926). I also looked through the Springfield Republican, a Masschusetts newspaper, where I gathered a slew of material on the Denishawn performance there in 1924. (One of the articles mentioned Louise Brooks.) I also got an advertisement and review of The City Gone Wild (1927). And then from the now defunctPittsburgh Press I found material on The Street of Forgotten Men (1925), Now We're in the Air (1927), The Canary Murder Case (1929), and It Pays to Advertise(1931). All together, it was a good haul.
