I know we've had a thread on the Americom soundies and talk of 8mm film pops up here and there but I'm not sure there's been a thread devoted exclusively to that quintessential Monster Kid collecting habit of 8mm and Super 8mm film digests. If there is such a thread I apologize and stand corrected. Meanwhile, I'll kick things off:
My very first 8mm digest was a 50' reel that contained the unmasking scene from Lon Chaney's THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. I ordered this from Captain Company out of the pages of Famous Monsters of Filmland. In the future, my purchases would be made at K-Mart and other department stores that had camera departments, as well as some camera shops themselves.
What was your first 8mm digest and where did you get it?
