Re: SMITH'S ARMY LIFE (1928) Raymond McKee, Ruth Histt, Mary Ann Jackson

Mary Ann Jackson is unquestionably the most underrated child actor of the silent era. She's a phenomenon in the pre-talkie MGM Our Gangs.

Re: Okay-----NOW!: CHARLEY CHASE AT HAL ROACH: THE TALKIES VOLUME ONE 1930-31

Simply the greatest release of 2018. Sure we’re only three weeks into January, but I can’t envision anything topping it. Kudos to you, Mr. Roberts!

Re: Nitrateville Answer Dept: Keaton Radio Appearances

My pleasure! But upon a re-listen, it's pretty obvious the whiskey's getting the better of Buster on the Rudy Vallee show.

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

I don't have much to add to this conversation at the nonce beyond "Take my money!" -- I'm still gobsmacked every day by what my DVD shelf holds (the complete Chase and Keaton Columbias -- and the Shemps, Bessers and DeRitas too??) so I've got nothing but gratitude (and money) for those bra...

Atoll K -- because I like it.

Hi all, I've been away from SCM for generations of centuries of hundreds of years, but wanted to contribute something and get back into the SCM groove.
