Re: THE BARGAIN HUNT (1928) Smith Family

Thanks for posting this, Richard! I haven't seen enough Smith Family, but it's clear that Mary Ann Jackson was more than ready for Our Gang.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving all! I find myself with some free time today to poke around this board, for which I am truly thankful. In addition to being a priceless resource of information, there's so many forgotten gems posted throughout. Some of you have projects in the works to which I am very much looking...

Re: Yes Virginia, there's gonna be a Charley Chase Roach Talkie set

This is very exciting news; I'm all in. (I never thought I'd see commentary tracks for any Chase talkies.) Thank you for persevering, Richard.

Re: MR. SUICIDE: HENRY "PATHE" LEHRMAN AND THE BIRTH OF SILENT COMEDY

I just got your book, Thomas, and I already can't put it down! I'm hoping not to finish it before my summer vacation starts.

Bud Jamison at the very end! Has there yet been anything published on The Hall Room Boys? I've been using the guide from COLUMBIA SHORT DEPARTMENT. http://columbiashortsdept.weebly.com/th ... -boys.html

Re: THE GOOFY AGE (1924) Glenn Tryon

Was the superimposition of dialogue text over the action authentic, or was it unique to small gauge prints? (Perhaps to make it more affordable by saving a few feet of film.) I'm just curious, because I haven't seen it to this degree before.

Re: THE OLD WALLOP (1927) Our Gang

I finally got around to watching this. It's great to see another long-lost Our Gang silent; what are there about three still missing? Wheezer provides a great ending, though it's a little unnerving to see the Rascals in Harold Lloyd territory. (More so than say Laurel & Hardy in LIBERTY.) The re...
