They need funds to complete the project. Here's how you can help--Cinematically Insane

Plaster bum casts! Sweaty prop guys dancing with cut-outs of penguins! Dick van Dyke playing pranks while disguised as a banker! And more memories from a young actress and a composer who worked on Mary Poppins--The Guardian

Fascinating idea: the participants Classic Movie History Project Blogathon will each reflect on a year in film from 1915-1950, whether through an overview, a movie review, or whatever they desire. The participant roster is already full, so there will be lots of posts to read come January 12--Movies Silently
