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

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. P.S. Loved the Chase set! All the material was new to me, but having become a Todd fan over the past few years I picked it up. Sure g...

Re: MACK SENNETT COLLECTION VOLUME ONE on sale at Amazon

Thanks for posting the low price link last month. I picked up 2 additional copies for gift purposes. In my opinion this represents the finest Blu-ray silent collection ever issued and shows how great 90-100 year old films can be when presented properly on a medium that can handle it. Not to mention ...

Re: THE MACK SENNETT COLLECTION Volume Two

Excellent news! Can't wait for more Blu-ray 191x's Keystone's, Biograph's and W.H. Productions that run at a speed where one can actually enjoy them. For the Mabel's alone my money is waiting for you folks to claim it :)

Re: Restored WHEN COMEDY WAS KING DVD from Sprocket Vault

Excellent! Thanks for posting the info. Ordered! A late night local TV showing "When Comedy Was King" a couple of decades ago is what stimulated my interest in Silent Film Comedy. Can't wait to see this again while eating New England style clam shack style scallops and oysters. Very, Very ...

Re: MACK SENNETT COLLECTION VOL 1 Blu-Ray

da Vinci?? He worked very slow..... Agreed but his images/work are still life. Which is the result that i feel when I attempt to watch the "Chaplin at Keystone" set and to a lesser degree the new Mutual box. Mr. Roberts thanks for the kind words. I only call things as I see [or in this ca...

Re: MACK SENNETT COLLECTION COMMENTARY TRACKS and ERRATA

Hey, how did I end up doing more the rest of the gang? Lazy Pikers! RICHARD M ROBERTS (and if I'd have known GALLOPING BUNGALOWS was going wanting, I'd have done one for that too, it's one of the best Sennetts Del Lord ever did) Hello Mr Roberts, I am finally posting :) I would be interested in any...

Re: MACK SENNETT COLLECTION COMMENTARY TRACKS and ERRATA

One question, I already have a BluRay player (a PS3) but it would not read the PDF of Joe's essay. Do I need a BluRay drive on a PC also so I can read the PDF? That's not a complaint, I'll gladly update my PC if I need to, just checking to see if there is another way to read the file. It's not a Bl...
