From the personal collection of former 1930s child actor Billy Seay, approximately 120, all original prints with either a matte or glossy finish, depicting scenes from random films like "The Children" (Paramount, 1920s), "The Divorcee" (MGM, 1930), "The Gun Fighter" (20th Century Fox, 1950), "My Man" (Warner Bros., 1928), "No Cheating" (Educational Film Exchange, 1927), "The Rough Riders" (Paramount, 1927), and "Sweater Girl" (Paramount, 1942) among many others that are unidentified, also depicting actors such as Gary Cooper, Marlene Dietrich, Rita Johnson, Jeanette MacDonald, Fred MacMurray, Ann Miller, Gregory Peck, Will Rogers, and Billy Seay, among many others who are unidentified -- overall, a unique collection illustrating many films that are now lost to history -- the collection really must be seen in person to appreciate its scope and variety.
