Re: THELMA TODD/ZASU PITTS: THE HAL ROACH COLLECTION 1931-33 Coming in October

[quote="Rift Corbitt"]Excellent! Is the "legit" confusion over the font used on the packaging? Or the lack of a back cover image being displayed on Amazon? My guess is the later. [quote] Hi Rift. Neither, see this previous thread: http://www.silentcomedymafia.com/viewtopic.php?f=...
