The European Film Gateway (EFG) went online on July 26.  The website will give  film lovers and film historians access to European film archives, photos, newsreels, posters, rare documents and much more. Researchers will have easy access to 16 archives that hold the original documents, photos, or film.  The EFG website can be read in three languages: German, English, and Italian.

  1. EFG is pretty interesting. I love that!

    Oh I saw your boy Armitage last night in Cap'n USA!! He is only in it for like 5 mins!! Shocking

  2. @Custard I know, how can he only be in CA for so short a time! I need to buy the DVD so I can see him in slow motion :) :)

    Isn't it great! Love the old newsreels and photos on EFG.

  3. Thanks for the acorntv heads-up! I wonder if they'll get the whole british television catalogue on there at some point. If so, I'd be willing to sign-up. Have you signed-up for the free trial?

    And also, thanks about the news about Patsy Cline. I used to love her!! I can't believe she was only 30 when she died. I didn't realize that. How young!

  4. @calexora I haven't signed up yet for the free trial with Acorn TV, thinking about it still. Same for me, if they have programs that haven't been shown in the US, or ones that likely won't be, I think I might be willing to sign up. If it's she same Acorn group, they used to have a catalog of UK shows and documentaries for many years.

    Yes, so young Patsy Cline, she had a wonderful voice :)

  5. RA should have had more screen time- but what was there was good-
    Love Patsy Cline have tons of her music I vaguely remember the news talking about it on tv when it happened-- I was 4-

  6. @Jo Hi! Agree, not enough of RA and Heinz.

    Lovely to know you are a Patsy Cline fan! Thank you so much for your comments :)
