Is it possible for someone to repost a working link or send me a copy?



It has been ten years, and if you didn't get it in that time, you don't really need it.

Re: Hal Roach Studios Query

Richard, Regarding the late L&H silents, I was wondering if LIBERTY (1929) was reissued by Film Classics. There are frames from title cards with typical FC lettering and background design, sans MGM trademarks, displayed here: http://www.lordheath.com/menu1_167.html If not from FC, do you know t...

Re: LISTEN LENA (1927) Al St. John, Clem Beauchamp

I thought the consensus was that it was Roscoe Arbuckle playing the role of the man with obscured face. It seems to make sense given that this is a recycling of a joke from a Comique (if I recall correctly). Or is this no longer thought to be Roscoe? The fat man in LISTEN LENA is considerably talle...

Re: Saw STAN AND OLLIE last night.....

Whatever Babe was telling the restauranteur as quoted in PRATFALL! -- about the team not speaking to each other in 1944 -- this interview makes it clear that they were fast friends again during their 1947 tour. Babe's compliment to Stan that "you've taught me everything you know about comedy&q...

Re: Saw STAN AND OLLIE last night.....

I believe nothing that comes from the National Enquirer, and doubt that whatever their disagreements were, one would never have thought the other would "stink" as a person. much less say so on a set. Abbott and Costello perhaps, Martin and Lewis definitely, not Stan and Babe. RICHARD M ROB...
