Another obscure company, "Sphere Movie Film Inc".

 -

Have you ever heard it? or this is just a re-packed from another company like DeMaio?

There few films from this company now in Ebay and mostly are Horror.

There's absolutely nothing on the web about a Sphere Motion Pictures. On the label if you look real closely it states from So-and-so's Movieworld Collection. My guess is this was someone's 'basement' business in which they sold their own goods whether orignal manufactured product of their own or 2nd hand goodies from a private library. There's never been an actual 400' digest for "House Of Frankenstein" which the seller had up on Ebay a while back. I'll bet it was the 2 Castle extracts spliced or perhaps edited together

I'm curious about the "King Of The Rocket Men" reel. Was this serial released in it's entirety?
I've never heard of any release for this title except maybe the Republic silent Radar Men from The Moon.

Thanks Chris, for the info.
I love all the Commando Cody serials, at least I have them on DVD.

Terry,

Off topic, but Republic also released a Commando Cody 50 footer entitled Retik the Moon Monster, using the same artwork as Radar Men from the Moon.

Thanks Doug
I was not aware of that one, although I do have another 50 footer titled "D Day On Mars"!
