1925: Harpo Marx is starring on Broadway; Richard Dix is one of the newest stars of the silent screen and William Powell is nearly a decade away from making the first Thin Man movie. The three of them star in Paramount's delightful comedy Too Many Kisses, which vanishes without a trace shortly after its initial release. Thought lost for decades, the film is now available for the first time.

With a new score composed and performed by Bill Marx - son of Harpo - Too Many Kisses is presented to modern audiences in a beautiful new restoration from Film Preservation Society. Among the film's many charms is the chance to see Harpo speak - albeit through a title card. Powell is sinister in one of his many early villain roles and Dix is the dashing young romantic hero. (He's romancing Frances Howard, who would soon give up her career to marry producer Samuel Goldwyn.)

Too Many Kisses will excite Marx Brothers fans eager to see the film debut of Harpo Marx. But Marx Brothers fans also get another important, rarely seen film on this Blu-ray edition of Too Many Kisses. The House That Shadows Built, a 1931 Paramount promotional feature celebrating the studio's 20th anniversary, includes a Marx Brothers sequence not seen in any of their films. And that's not the only rare treasure. Clips from lost silent films featuring stars like Douglas Fairbanks and Lon Chaney are included in this meticulously restored piece of film history.

BONUS FEATURES:

The House That Shadows Built, restored 1931 Paramount publicity film featuring the Four Marx Brothers, Rudolph Valentino, Douglas Fairbanks, Gary Cooper, William S. Hart, Clara Bow, Lon Chaney, Marlene Dietrich, Harold Lloyd, Gloria Swanson, John Barrymore, and many other stars.

"About Film Preservation Society," a short presentation about The Biograph Project, an effort to restore and preserve all of the short films directed by D.W. Griffith for the Biograph Company.

Restored 1910 D.W. Griffith Biograph short, "A Child's Impulse" starring Mary Pickford, and featuring a new score written and performed by Donald Sosin.

16-page booklet with essays by D. Christian Anderson, Robert S. Bader, Kevin Brownlow, and Tracey Goessel.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.
