Lots of Film, just do some searching and different player options.  That Thomas Edison guy had a good idea. ;)

Good site, Delmonico.

It's amazing how these films can have their speed regulated digitally so that they play like modern film reels, when you consider they were shot with a hand-cranked reel camera at varying speeds.

Thanks.
