Re: Larry Semon DVDs

Here are the two Grapevine sets: http://www.grapevinevideo.com/larry_semon_1.html http://www.grapevinevideo.com/larry_semon_2.html And I second the "stay away from the Silent Hall of Fame" comment from Mr. Farr, they are gouging on product that can be gotten better and cheaper elsewhere, a...

NItrateville Total Jackassery: Reviving a ten-year old thread

Gad, there's so little of interest over at Nitwitville that the inmates are dredging up ten-year old threads to argue with: https://www.nitrateville.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4701&start=30 Admittedly, there ain't much of interest over there, what, Gebert blowing even his imagined credibility a...

Re: Ron Hutchison passes away

Here's Leonard Maltin's memorial tribute to Ron: http://leonardmaltin.com/farewell-to-vitaphone-champion-ron-hutchinson-one-of-the-good-guys/ And I notice that Nitwitvile has removed Ron's picture from it's masthead this morning, he didn't even get a week, typical Nitrateville tackiness.

He was one of the major forces in film preservation with the Vitaphone Project and a genuinely nice man, and our community suffers a terrible loss from his passing. It was due to his diligent efforts t...

Re: More NItrateville Bullshit: Bobby Driscoll Story....

Hey, someone's come on and slapped Bigsnot around not only for the Dickie Jones crap, but the Walt Disney crap as well. This might actually get interesting if Gebert and the other Nitwitvile thought-police don't come in and cleanse the thread. We'll see. Anyone who wants to shut down the "Ub Iw...

More NItrateville Bullshit: Bobby Driscoll Story....

You gotta love it when the nitwits at Nitwitvile are haranguing the inaccuracies in an ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY story while spreading more on their own: https://www.nitrateville.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=27689 We've knocked on this nameless idiot Bigsnot before about his lack of knowledge on how DVD's...
