Re: Sam Gill and Richard M Roberts Zoom Conversation December 19 online

WOW! I loved watching and listening to Richard, Sam, and Hooman also. Great show. Just wanted to add that Ben Turpin supposedly clowned with Ringling Brothers sometime prior to August 1906 (according to a newspaper blurb at that time). Chester Conklin also clowned for the Ringlings before entering m...

Re: Unknown Lloyd Hamilton Clips

Indeed it is, but I hate to say my biggest laugh is in Arte's identifying sub-title for the Weiss Brother Pollard-Loback ONCE OVER, where underneath the Auteuristic Eurpoeans have to list the name of that great "Auteur" Leslie Goodwins!! Like he was the great lone moving and shaking creat...

Re: Unknown Lloyd Hamilton Clips

Hi Rob & Richard. Thanks for tipping me off to that great collection of clips.

Just wanted to say that long clip of Monty Banks from FOB Africa is a gem.

Re: Larry Semon DVDs

David, please DO stay away from this seller. The seller took advantage of the generosity of a long-time Larry Semon collector in Germany and appropriated many rare films that were on personal loan. He also broke an agreement to use them for research purposes only. The owner had every intention of do...

Re: Slapsticon Notes: TAKING THE COUNT (1929) Ben Turpin

Years ago I had a complete and gorgeous print of this one, Richard. Later it was one of several I had sold to a 16mm comedy collector named Dan Bursik. It's not one of Ben's best for the little company, agreed, but would have been great to see again on Weiss-A-Rama Two. Also in the cast were Joe Bon...

Re: BRING HOME THE TURKEY (1927) Our Gang

Re: Answering Nitratevile General Jackassery

I too get annoyed by silly things wherever they appear such as trying to ID a familiar face. I'll admit few faces are occasionally hard, some may not even be actors. In mo...
