Soundies Now Streaming on Max

 

Soundies programs streaming on Max

Last summer I did some program consulting for Turner Classic Movies, capped by two nights of Soundies and related feature films in September.

Now, several of those September Soundies–and others that I suggested–are available for streaming on Max (formerly HBO Max).

The 5 programs include an all-star lineup in Season 1, followed by sets on big bands, dance, country-western, and wartime life.

With a little over two weeks to go before the July 25 release of Soundies: The Ultimate Collection, these programs are a terrific preview for Max subscribers.

Sneak Preview: Shooting the Intros for a New Soundies Collection

Last week I was at the Library of Congress Audio-Visual Conservation Center in Virginia with Ina Archer, an artist and media conservation specialist at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.

This spring, Kino Lorber will release a collection of Soundies that I curated—24 programs worth. Ina and I were in the LC’s gorgeous Packard Campus Theater to shoot some of the on-camera intros.

We had a blast talking Soundies—everything from Paddy Callahan Has Joined the Army to Emily Brown.

Thanks to everyone at the LC, especially Rob Stone and David, the theater projectionist. And to our indefatigable crew, production manager Heather Buckley and DP Eric Thirteen.

More news about the Kino Lorber Soundies package to come.
