The picture quality on all of the main titles is just crystal clear, sharp, and perfect. We didn't always see these credits growing up watching the shorts on TV, so their restorations are also revelations.

This was just brilliant. One of my favorite is Our Gang Follies of 1936. I purchased a super 8mm sound copy from Blackhawk films back around 1970 and ran it until it was in shreds. I also owned it on VHS, laser disc and DVD. Never have I seen it so sharp and clear with such wonderful sound. The rest of the shorts are just as amazing. Thank you ClassicFlix.

Blackhawk Films in Davenport, Iowa rocked & rolled my 1970s world. Oh, how I hustled for those extra few hours at my bellhop job just to get another order in. Remember their sales? Remember those “Back-Ordered” postcards”? Weeks and weeks of waiting was a standard and accepted fare. By comparison, any delays from Amazon is a big don’t-sweat-it nothing.

As it stands, one single reel of a Little Rascals short in Super 8mm with Magnetic Sound - without the 1970s sale - could cost us more than one single Little Rascals BD from ClassicFlix that holds 12 shorts with, let alone, a brand “Spanky” new restoration to beat the band.

I have too many accolades for what ClassicFlix has given and achieved.

Great reading your revue, Matt.
