Welcome to my tip jar. Sharper than a PayPal button, no?

Minimum donation starts at just $1 per month, though you're welcome to increase that amount if you wish. You'll even get some free stuff for doing so! Just remember, this is a recurring pledge, so you'll be charged that amount monthly unless you decide to cancel or alter the amount of your donation.

With apologies if you've hopped on over from the site or already know me, but otherwise, I'm Cliff Aliperti and I blog about old movies at Immortal Ephemera and sell old movie stuff through the Immortal Ephemera Store.

My site began under another name, but has existed in some form since 2002. The focus is on classic movies, the type you see on TCM, though I often extend beyond their universe of films. I try to stick to blogging about the movies that excite me, and over time that has continued to refine itself to movies of a certain age and era. While the tagline of the site refers to obscure movies and forgotten stars from the Silent Age through Hollywood's Golden Age, the 1930s are where I really like to stick. Especially the early '30s and the pre-Code era. That said, I'll still occasionally post about a silent film or even something as late as the 1950s. Most fun for me: Being blown away by an out-of-print underappreciated movie that has less than ten IMDb ratings and then trying to get the word out about that title!

Another major feature of the site are the vintage movie star collectibles issued back in the time of the movies and film stars. My scope is a bit wider in this area with film star trading cards, postcards, premium and supplement photos, and vintage still photos from the 1910s up through the 1960s all on display, under discussion, and even offered for sale. At this time Immortal Ephemera offers access to thousands of vintage images in approximately 250 different galleries of vintage collectibles—all for free. I bring in as much as I can, scan them to share on the site, and do my best to sell the physical item off at a reasonable price in the Immortal Ephemera Store. All items are absolutely vintage to the date of their issue, whether that be a 1960s movie still or a 1916 movie card.

You'll find a little bit more about me on the About page over on my site.

As I mentioned, I'm signing on to Patreon with the idea of using it as a tip jar, so every dollar is absolutely appreciated! If you'd like to contribute more, then I've made some of my eBooks and even my Helen Twelvetrees paperback available at certain patron tiers. I've always believed in funding Immortal Ephemera through sales of my items, so once your contribution hits the $10 level I start giving back coupons to my Store.

Every post on Immortal Ephemera will continue to be free to anyone who happens upon them.

I do plan an image-heavy experience for those kind enough to pledge. Over the past year it's become harder to make a living at this, so I've had to spend more time working on the store and haven't been able to create as many original articles for the site as I have in the past—I'm hoping this Patreon helps ease that load some and allow me more time to write. In the meantime, I have a vast library of vintage movie collectible images that I've scanned over the past couple of decades. I plan to post the pretty pictures!

Hope that works for you guys. Mostly, you'll have my greatest gratitude for feeling my work is worth a few dollars per month. Thanks so much!

My gratitude, access to my Patreon Activity feed, a monthly coupon good for 10% off any sized order at the Immortal Ephemera Store (US patrons only), and some heads-ups on Immortal Ephemera-related announcements and sales. You'll definitely get some extra images and extra access to me, and we'll let the activity of the page dictate beyond that. Thanks for joining in!

At this level you'll receive all of the stuff listed above (MOBI/PDF copies of my 6 eBooks, paperback copy of my Helen Twelvetrees book, access to the monthly coupon good for 10% off any sized order at the Immortal Ephemera Store (US patrons only), an additional $25 per month coupon to the Immortal Ephemera Store (US-based customers only at this time) 


AND you'll get to select a monthly subject, biography or film review, for me to write a 500-word minimum article about for the Immortal Ephemera website. 


Subject will have to fit the theme of the site without already being covered on the site--recommended topics are film stars who peaked during the 1930s/40 and films of the 1930s/40s. For movie reviews I'll also have to have a copy on hand (I have a big collection) or you'd have to supply me with a copy.

Goals
$0 of $20 per month
Reaching $20 would cover my most basic hosting fees for the Immortal Ephemera site. It would allow me a sigh of relief come the 10th of every month!
