    A great loss to early sound film enthusiasts. Without him and his team of Vitaphone archaeologists we would not be enjoying so many early sound shorts and features.We will always cherish his passion and work. RIP

    Ron Hutchinson's path and contributions exemplifies those rare numbers of elite individuals who have restored, preserved, archived and brought back from the deep past the great visions, talents and entertainers of a time gone by. Ron Hutchinson's passions for unearthing and salvaging the Vitaphone discs - our earliest heritages of recorded sound for film - was a pursuit that proved itself to be most invaluable. With gratitude, his work was something from which so many of us have benefited. For those not familiar, I hope that you'll one day treat yourselves to the many amazing finds that he left behind for us to enjoy @ http://www.vitaphoneproject.com

    Rest in Peace, Mr. Hutchinson.

    When did Kevin Brownlow die? Hadn't heard about him passing...

    My error.
    Thankfully, Mr. Brownlow's parade has not gone by...
    I have re-edited my initial post.


    Respectfully, let us now return to Ron Hutchinson and http://www.vitaphoneproject.com
