Biblioteca Films: Numbers 1 to 100

This directory begins with Biblioteca Films Volume 13 for a few reasons. One, it is probably the most popularly seen volume with its ubiquitous red (to a lesser degree, blue, green or even black) designs on the cover in either ivy or two silhouetted figures. Second, many foreign silent films appear in the first hundred film booklets published. Third, while what appears to be the majority of silent film titles that did survive and are housed in film archives, these booklets can be translated to English quite easily and provide the reader some idea of what the film is about – including film stills within these booklets. Finally, these Spanish film booklets are a fun silent film collectible, in addition to their historical value in silent film identification and restoration. An example of the last one might be the following: Say only three 35mm reels of a five-reel silent film have survived and are slated for restoration and digitization. A film booklet can fill the missing reels in the story, providing reconstruction material. In addition to feature-length silent films, some film shorts and serials made their way into this film booklet series.

The following film booklets were published during the late 1920’s to early thirties in Barcelona, Spain. As this list grows (silent films reach film booklet numbers as high as the upper 400’s), partial sound films will be included. Some of the numbers below lack an available title and are simply a parking spot. Many of these Spanish silent film titles have been translated by me, as accurately as possible. Eventually more silent film booklet series will be added to this website.

Many thanks to Filmoteca Catalunya for a number of the below silent film titles plus the English version. The rest have been translated and identified by me.

A total of 642 titles, both silent film and sound film, were published in this series.
