Customer Feedback:

"In a world where most home video companies view silent cartoons as having very little commercial value, operations like “Tom’s Vintage Film” are a godsend. He has compiled a wide range of silent cartoon titles, all transferred onto DVD with great care. I’ve bought several titles, and they fail to disappoint. Sure, some of the prints have seen better days, but more often they simply add to the charm.

Are you new to silent cartoons and don’t know what to buy first? I personally recommend the Felix DVDs as a starter."

-Lee G., UK


"People, Tom's operation is not the biggest. His products are obviously those that are produced by an enthusiast...but folks, Stathes does the collecting so you don't have to! Forget the endless flea-market foraging, eBay hunting, the cataloging, the compiling. Just grab a volume from his webpage. It's as simple as that."
-Craig D.
Fayetteville, NC.
"I was delighted to see these old cartoons preserved with care on these dvds. The overall quality is very good, with just a few prints washed out or worn out, but there is no other way to see them these days. I hope Tom will add more hard-to-find titles over the years. I'll certainly be looking forward to them."
Philippe V., Paris, France
"The DVDs all arrived in good shape because of the care you took in packaging them. I am a fan of silent cartoons and I have never seen many of the titles. The overall quality of these old films was better than I expected..."
-Lynn C.
Alfred, ME

I received my two DVD's from you and have had a chance to through them.  I really liked them!  Both were extremley interesting and enjoyable.  The one Krazy Kat Cartoon on the Halloween disc was hilarious; I am definetly interested in seeing more of those eventually as well as other silent treasures.
