WILL POWER 1913 Pearl White

One of Pearl's Crystal comedies with Chester Barnett and Baldy Belmont. Very charming.

Result of Eating Horseflesh 1908

Gotcha!
Apparently that was the English title of CALINO A MANGE DU CHEVAL (Pathe Freres 1908) directed by Romeo Bosetti with Paul Bertho.

The Forgotten Watch (1909)

A nice little split-reel comedy from Vitagraph with William Shea. (Huntley misidentifies it as a Lubin of the same title made a year earlier).

DAVID HARUM (1915)

Most are more familiar with the Will Rogers' sound version, but here is an earlier incarnation starring William H. Crane, who played it on the stage.

Burglar by Proxy 1919

Here is a rather pleasant Jack Pickford romantic comedy with Gloria Hope. Jack Dillon directs and also gives fine comic support. Among the cops, you can see Charles Force and Robert Kortman; Leo Willis as a burglar. No intertitles, but you don't need them.

I thought I spotted Bob McKenzie (at the 43 second mark, behind Frank A's right shoulder), but wasn't he at L-KO at the time...? Or is this just after?

Re: THE REAL THING IN COWBOYS (1914) Tom Mix

Here is the first half of the film https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz0HAJY7Kjs I may be wrong, but I think you can spot a young Hoot Gibson sneak in between Leo Maloney (in vest) and Tom Mix from atop the hale bay at the 7:06 mark for a few seconds (and I think he is in the background leaning agains...
