Re: A New John Wayne/Lloyd Hamilton spotting

Nice one Richard. Can't believe I hadn't noticed it myself, considering how many times I ended up watching it during the restoration process! I'm sure you were too concerned with making the short look as great as it could to be concerned with background players. The irony was that we sat down to wa...

Re: Is Spencer Bell G. Howe Black?

Is this the Curtis McHenry you're looking for? I don't know him well enough for a visual id. I thought this could be a contender as he's in Los Angeles, and seems to be doing non cinema work at this period (1929). The person in this image also seems to be the Curtiss McHenry who was a comedian with...

Re: Is Spencer Bell G. Howe Black?

Stop the presses! Steve Rydzewski has id'ed G. Howe Black as Curtis McHenry, and I second the motion. Take a look at the first few minutes of THE GREAT K AND A TRAIN ROBBERY (1926) at the Pullman porter "Snowball" (and Dorothy Dwan is in this as well.). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Whb3...

Re: Is Spencer Bell G. Howe Black?

https://www.facebook.com/groups/149005355292858/permalink/740863766107011/ Okay folks, some of the speculation is getting a bit silly, there's no problem finding Spencer Bell credits at Educational and Sennett during the period of G.

The Annual Merry Mafiosi Christmas Greeting

Okay Gang, as I have been seeing some peripheral Holiday wishes being wished in other posts, it's time to put up the official placeholder for that sort of thing. We here in the cozy Godfather Room of the palatial Silent Comedy Mafia Clubhouse sit in our overstuffed leather easy-chair by the roaring ...
