Re: Keaton Society - 2017 Porkpie Scholar Grant

That is an interesting question, Richard. I suspect that our membership skews much older. However, there are no age restrictions for this grant -- it is based solely on the merit of the project. Anyone working on a Keaton related project, of nearly any sort, may apply.

Re: SCM SITE UPGRADE and BRIEF OUTTAGES

Greetings, All!

It is time to upgrade SCM again. The site may be down or run slowly at various
times over the next day or two. I will try to confine work to the wee hours.

Re: Frame Grabs from Lost Films

But there are not. According to Jack Theakston:

"The images posted by Filmoteca Canaria are from single frames, an album of which was donated to the archive in 1995."

Single frames, no nothing more. Tantalizing, tho.

Re: Frame Grabs from Lost Films

Fascinating, Rob. The frame is NOT from the known surviving footage of THE ROGUE SONG. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/722/32866089566_cbe3aeec89_b.jpg At present there are only two surviving Laurel and Hardy sequences: The storm / cave scene, which was located in 1981, and a gag wherein Stan has swal...
