Kelly Scrap Book – Wallace Kelly


A reel of “odds and ends” from Wallace Kelly’s film collection from the 1930s. The film consists primarily of family home movies, but also includes outtakes from “Our Day,” scenes of the film “The Story of Astoria,” shots of a marquee of the Marx Brothers in “Monkey Business” (1931) and clips of Kodacolor lenticular film (transferred as black & white).

Kelly, a newspaperman from Lebanon, Kentucky, was also an accomplished photographer, painter, and writer. He began shooting film in 1929 and continued until the 1950s. His film “Our Day” was named to the National Film Registry in 2007.
