Thanks for all these Movietone PDFs! Really enjoying them… Wonderful to be able to access these original reviews online.

Just a note from my reading so far – Issue 48 appears to be missing pages 13-14 from the PDF. I’d like to read the rest of the D.O.A article : )

You are correct. The issue will have to be rescanned (apparently you cannot insert pages in a finished .pdf) so it may be awhile until it is up.
