First of all – thank you to everyone who has visited both this blog and aventurasdetomtyler.com since its inception in January 2015. As well, thank you to everyone who has emailed me about this site, the accolades are very much appreciated, and it’s been a long time in coming for Tom Tyler to have a dedicated website. When I first built this site, I had no idea it would become this huge. The amount of digital material accumulated was lightning fast – with thanks to Lantern Media History, Newspapers.com, international publication databases, and many other sites, including film archives here in the states plus around the world.
It could be that much of Tom Tyler’s silent film career during the mid- to late 1920’s lay “dormant” and inaccessible to the general public until very recently, which, thanks to the above named websites and databases – which have become alive with their cast members, plots, and production notes on Aventuras de Tom Tyler, along with available images of each silent film Tom made for FBO. Best of all, more of Tom’s lost films continue to be rediscovered, perhaps the biggest rediscovery to date being “Jungle Mystery” which was restored by Universal in 2016 and showcased at Cinecon 52. As to whether Universal will release this famous film serial on DVD remains to be seen although there is a better chance of another home distributor licensing “Jungle Mystery” from Universal – it’s been done before and it can be done again.
Of course, any other news about Tom Tyler’s movie career will be mentioned on Aventuras de Tom Tyler will be mentioned, too. In the meantime – Happy Holidays 2018 and Happy New Year 2019!
