Re: A challenge: Find a stranger silent comedy

Wiggle Your Ears is...interesting.

The Mystery of the Leaping Fish is very surreal.

I've yet to see the other Our Gang short and Wet and Warmer.

Re: Locomotives and Comedy

Great job, Gary. I hope you didn't miss your train.

Could anyone list all of the films featured in this clip? The only one I didn't recognize is the clip with the man and woman running towards the back of the train as it gains speed.

Re: A little nostalgia for Mr. Roberts…

I thought that L&H score sounded familiar. I haven't watched "Kook's Tour" in years.
