WELCOME TO OUR
We want to welcome our newest sponsor:
Movie Poster Service - Movie Poster Service has the
oldest and largest collection of movie posters in the world. In 1973,
Cleophas Wooley purchased the first independent poster exchange in the
nation from his then father-in-law, Bob Smith, who started the exchange.
Cleophas changed the name to Movie Poster Service, and he and his new
wife Lou Ann continued to serve theaters for many years. As the theater
play dates changed, and collector appreciation increased, Movie Poster
Service became collector oriented, offering over one million pieces
of the best condition movie posters, lobby cards, pressbooks, and other
movie memorabilia in the world today. For more information, check out
their website HERE.

What is Godzilla's real name? Was Raymond Burr in the first Godzilla
film? Which monsters made their debut in a Godzilla film? Who was the
director of the first Godzilla film?
and other important questions are answered in our newest LAMP article:
Godzilla. As part of our Legends Series, we take an
in-depth look at this Japanese phenom, untangling the many international
releases where misidentification was common due to language barriers.

As many of you know, we were directly impacted by Hurricane Katrina.
We live in Gretna, LA, a suburb of New Orleans. We were forced to evacuate
the area and returned about 10 days ago to our community.
During this time, the LAMP website continued as usual -- with the exceptions
that we could not update the site and were unable to answer a lot of
emails. Although we are still not able to return to our home due to
storm damage, we have set up our operations at our daughter's house
and you will be seeing new updates to LAMP immediately.
