Re: Well blow me down with an anchovy.

Long time with no contribution, but I guess I owe it to you guys to rouse from my senile slumbers and do so as one who actually saw Stan and Ollie live before a packed to capacity audience at the Bristol Hippodrome all those years ago. I can't now recall which familiar sketches they did, but what is...

Re: Movie-Town

Thanks for the taster youtube link, Richard. It sure is amazing what you can find there if you look hard enough.

The red to green dress gag is a hoot.

Re: Movie-Town

Many thanks for the info, Paul,

I'll look forward eagerly to further news. Meanwhile of course it goes without saying that the same applies to that Vol.2 of THE Collection itself!

Movie-Town

A question please for Paul Gierucki. Is there any chance that you might be planning to include the elusive Movie-Town in Volume 2 of the Mack Sennett Collection? On the strength of Brent Walker's comments in Fun Factory I've long wanted to see this intriguing one-off with its celebrities in cameo ap...

Thanks for the extra suggestions, guys. Funnily enough, from what little I've seen of the series it had flashed through my mind that there was a certain Collegians look about the situation, but then I guess such party mishaps were a staple of mid-20s comedy anyway. It had also struck me that the guy...

Re: Can anyone identify this please?

Many thanks for that fast input Richard, Alas, there's no way to trace the source of this picture. It's the odd one out in a small collection of otherwise familiar vintage comedy images (L&H and the like) which a colleague of mine saved from a deceased friend's computer. No title for it, just hi...

Can anyone identify this please?

Hi folks, Can anyone throw any light on this shot please. The clothes date it pretty clearly to around 1926, but I can't put names to any of the three. It's been suggested that Anita Garvin is on the right, but I'm not convinced it's her at all, even though this girl seems to have suffered a similar...
