Pat & Patachon ( & other Danish silents) HD streams

The great website and project, stumfilm.dk, has been up for a while, but not mentioned on this board yet, I think. The digitizations by the DFI streaming in full HD include some short silent comedies (such as with Oscar Stribolt and Frederik Buch), https://www.stumfilm.dk/en/stumfilm/themes/funny-gu...

This is especially ironic since for a long time, when sho...

More JL DAY THE CLOWN CRIED

Some more snippets of CLOWN behind-the-scenes footage (and JL interview, sadly marred by German voice-over), maybe some five minutes all in all, have resurfaced on DVD here: https://www.pidax-film.de/Gesamtkatalog/V-I-P-Schaukel-Vol-1::1567.html The bargain price suggests this might soon go OOP.

Re: Thief Catcher, Slapsticon, and Gierucki on German TV

Swiss TV, actually - and if you search that site, quite unsurprisingly you find a good amount of material on Chaplin's Swiss years, too!
