The Film Detective

Quick Look: While most "vintage movie" channels on Roku offer fuzzy, scratched versions of public domain movies downloaded directly from Internet archive sites, The Film Detective restores the films to near-original condition. Most titles originate from the 1940s, 50s and very early 60s. There are three free titles available as well as several trailers and movie intros.
