Do you have a movie made from every year in your collection?
 
Consider this the Ultimate-DVD-Collector question for the day -biggrin-
Do you have a movie made from every year in your collection?

I'm sure there's a few of you out there who might have Edison: The Invention of the Movies:1889-1918)
or More Treasures from American Film Archives (1894-1931) (And so forth) which could help you out.

The oldest I've got are the early Wizard of Oz shorts from '10 and '14. Not much else after that.

The only closest streak I can get is from 1929-2006. I'm only missing titles from '34,'50,and '56. Not bad. (My Silent German Horror box set should be arriving soon, so that might expand my timeline back further)

I'm not counting toons or those theatrical shorts from the 30's & '40s. Films only.

I'm not even close...

JohnnyDrama2006 08-10-06 04:59 PM

I've got 1894 ~ 2006 with only three exceptions.....

1917, 1918, 1924


edit ~ if we're counting shorts as extras contained on DVDs then I've got 1917 and 1924 via Trouble in Paradise (Criterion) and A nous la liberte (Criterion) respectively.

After checking out your collection, I noticed:
The Movies Begin-A Treasury of Early Cinema
That's the other box set I was going for in my first post. Thanks.

Nice run you got there!

Jason 08-10-06 05:24 PM

No, why would I?

k_lodge 08-10-06 05:29 PM

Have at least one from each year from 1930 - 2005

rw2516 08-10-06 06:12 PM

Got every year from 1929-2006

The Void 08-10-06 06:41 PM

I almost have 1935-2006 but I have 3 years that are not represented.

Years I'm missing: 1957, 1965, 1967

There's also "Landmarks of Early Film". I've recently undertaken the task of collecting the key works of cinema - starting with the Edison and AFI archives sets, Melies, Lumiere Bros, etc., and using David A. Cooks, "A History of Narrative Film" as a guide (a book that I read in the 80's that really got me into cinema) and progressing to the present day. That should be close to every year. So much of this stuff was difficult to see, much less obtain back when I read the book, until DVD came along.

matome 08-10-06 08:39 PM

Nothing before 1962 here.

critterdvd 08-10-06 09:04 PM

I have 74 and onward....

The fun thing about this thread is seeing the particular years that people don't have a movie from and then looking at what notable movies were released in those years. (i.e. 1950 - Sunset Boulevard, The Asphalt Jungle, Rashomon, All About Eve; 1956 - The Searchers; 1967 - The Dirty Dozen, Bonnie and Clyde, The Graduate) Personally, 1926 is the most recent year I don't have.

gryffinmaster 08-10-06 09:07 PM

Nah. There aren't a whole lot of films that I enjoyed from the '70s and '80s.

Which has been on my wishlist for awhile.

Any recommendations for '34?

hardercore 08-11-06 12:39 AM

I've got 1994-2005.

eedoon 08-11-06 12:46 AM

Everything from the 30s except 1963 and 1967. I'm not a big fans of the 60s I suppose.

I have every year from 1927 to the present one.

As for the silent era there are quite a few years missing, but I really need to catalogue all the early Chaplin shorts and odd fragments from public domain discs (like Stan Laurel's send-up of Blood and Sand.)

I must try to fill the gaps.

It Happened One Night
March of the Wooden Soldiers (aka Babes in Toyland)
The Thin Man
Twentieth Century

Xbox69 08-11-06 02:11 AM

I'm positive I don't have every year within my collection but I do have at least 1 from each decade from the '30s ("Dead End") onward.

Nothing from the '20s either but Chaplin's "The Immigrant" (1917) is an extra on "Au Revoir, Les Enfants" CC.

EddieN 08-11-06 08:53 AM

Starting from 1927 (but I do have one movie from 1920), these are the unrepresented years in my collection:

'34, '41, '65, '67, '69, '72, '73, '76, '91, '96

nemein 08-11-06 09:04 AM

W/ the exception of '46 and '47 I have something from 1940 to 2006.

bshassel 08-11-06 09:17 AM

Very interesting Thread. I hadn't thought to verify the years in my DVD Profiler.

Starting with 1915 I have films from every year to the present. I do have earlier films released in the Treasures from American Film Archives.

So again, good topic which brought to light an interesting fun fact about my collection.

Sean O'Hara 08-11-06 09:26 AM

I have at least one for every year from 1919 through 2005, except 1981.

Shagrath 08-11-06 09:29 AM

I've got from 1928 - 2006 with the exceptions of 1936 and 1948. Further back than that, it's just a random speckling, and I didn't count things like shorts, etc.
