SUPERMAN
We will also be screening two of the Fleischer Studio “Superman” shorts as part of the Free Culture Film Festival in Kitchener.  I’m betting that these are the only Superman films in the Public Domain (and they are my personal favourites).  Lois Lane is simply awesome in these!
at 2:00 we’ll be showing the first episode, “Superman” which has an earlier origin story that might surprise modern day fans of the man of steel.
The last film of the festival will be another Superman short, this one’s a train movie called “The Billion Dollar Limited.”  
The festival is part of KWLUG’s Software Freedom Day festivities being held at The Working Centre in Kitchener, Ontario.

One of my very favourite screwball comedies is this classic “His Girl Friday” and it, too, is in the Public Domain!
