Re: Ben Turpin's Unpublished Autobio Manuscript for Auction

Please ID this Buster Brown child actress.

Sadly I just lost this eBay auction. Photo shows Arthur Trimble dressed as Buster Brown with"STRONGMAN JOE BONOMO."

Out of curiosity who is the child actress that is with them?

Re: Cinevent Notes: THE TOMBOY (1924) Dorothy Devore

Thanks for the great history and notes on this film.

I actually have a fully tinted nitrate print of this in my freezer.

Do you know what studio was shown in that dream sequence? The one pictured as she was flying over it?
