I do not host or maintain any of these online films myself; these pages just link to publicly available trailers, clips and full-length films at YouTube and Vimeo. If full-length films are posted without authorization, the links will be disabled after the service determines there is a problem.
The Power of the Press (1928)
Frank Capra’s 1928 newspaper film was online at YouTube until the poster’s YouTube account was closed because of complaints of copyright infringement.
Big News (1929)
Plenty of newspaperman stereotypes already in action in 1929 — alcohol, bad marriages and a smart-aleck attitude when dealing with the boss. The star reporter is played by Robert Armstrong, who four years later went off in search of a very large ape named “King Kong.” Wade Boteler returned as the Irish cop turned reporter in two Green Hornet serials.
