And you'll find Popeye is in all his muttering, spinach-chomping, Bluto-bashing, crowd-pleasing greatness." -- Container
Saved from the flames 54 rare and restored films 1896-1944( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A unique and wonderful collection of 54 rare and restored short films from the inflammable years of cinema. Movies were once made on nitrate film stock, which has a chemical composition similar to gunpowder and is highly vulnerable to fire and decay. This remarkable seven-hour anthology, organized in eight thematic groups over three DVDs, presents amazing treasures from the vaults of Lobster Films in Paris and from the Blackhawk Films Collection, rescued during half a century of gathering movies from the nitrate era."--Container

"Born in the 30s, Betty Boop made her first appearance in cartoons with a walk-on role playing the dog-like love interest to Fleischer Studio's Bimbo character. Betty made such an impression that she soon found herself transformed into a big-eyed beauty who stood for the uninhibited masses at the end of the Roaring 20s. Betty's name quickly became legend and from her first provocative song to her very last Boop-oop-a-doop, she has managed to reign as a queen of animation for more than 75 years! See her at her very best in this collection of 22 beautifully restored and remastered shorts."--Container

2 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is beautifully colored, using tinting and toning in a very elaborate way.

Fleischer's combination of animation and live action resulted in the 'out of the inkwell' series produced from 1919 to 1929
