Thanks! The animated titles started in the mid-thirties. In the early thirties the titles were on art cards; they began superimposed titles around 1933 and then the fancy wipes and stuff a few years later.
There are some others I did posted on my youtube channel. I'm working on a FULLER BRUSH MAN trailer. Since Art Gilmore probably did narration for the original (which nobody has) I'm going to try and approximate his voice. I did a pretty good Warner Anderson for the THIS IS THE ARMY trailer soundtrack that I reconstructed (I had a trailer with a misprinted soundtrack so I had to re-build it). When I offered the trailer to Warners for the THIS IS THE ARMY DVD I suggested they take it without my imitation narration (okay for the Chelsea Rialto audience but not an official DVD). So the trailer on the DVD has my reconstructed soundtrack sans narration.
I take it that's your own vocally-authentic-sounding narration?
Definitely NOT, Preston. It is the narration taken from an acetate of the original 1936 Radio Prevue for SHOW BOAT. That prevue, by the way, includes Dunne & Jones singing "Why Do I Love You?", which was cut prior to release. It was included, however, in the subsequent Lux Radio Theatre broadcast.
Oh great, now I have to write to a dead man and tell him he mispronounced Hammerstein back in 1936!
I thought it might be you only because your first post simply said, "another of my recreations," or words to that effect, and that's all I knew. Have I missed earlier threads -- probably -- in which you explained all about this hobby (for want of a better word)?
Anyhow, as I said before, this is amazing and wonderful.
