i've known of He Who gets Slapped for eons, had no idea it was on Vimeo.

cmon Soto, the Wilder movie is worth it for Kirk's "no Yogi Berra" monologue and "Kneeling bags my nylons."

The NFR is about as credible an indicator of quality as the Oscars. No preservation grants come with induction into the registry, and there's no indication the Library of Congress or other archives prioritize inducted titles. But it gives me a little glimmer of hope when the registry recognizes lesser-known films.

He Who Gets Slapped is also on MOD DVD from Warner Archives. I can't find any indication as to the accompaniment.

The These Amazing Shadows documentary is a nice if you are fan of these kinds of film-clip heavy things (I am). Generally, the only real utility that these things have is encouraging the viewer to check out some of the movies, and accordingly, my main takeaway is that I really need to see Baby Face.

Yes, you do need to see Baby Face as soon as possible.

The Library of Congress' new National Screening Room ( features Selections from the National Film Registry ( LoC is obviously constrained by copyright issues, but at least some of more obscure NFR titles should be available.
