Re: Lost Charley Chase Comedy repremieres at Cinevent

Thoroughly enjoyed "The Way of All Dress" (UK title) at Cinevent. A lot of huge laughs by an enthusiastic crowd made it a real joy. Chase, as usual, was marvelous... but I think that dog stole the film!

Re: Lost Charley Chase Comedy repremieres at Cinevent

Terrific news! The lost gems just keep on comin'. Looking forward to the day one of youse guys opens a musty can, pulls out a reel and sees "Hats Off" etched on the leader.

I'll be in the audience enjoying Mr. Parrott in Columbus, as usual. See you there!

Re: PHOTOPLAY Hollywood short (1919)

Some nice footage of Flying A's Santa Barbara studio. And I love that shot panning across three different stages, showing three different scenes (or films?) in progress.

Harry Langdon's "Johnny's New Car"

A deep bow to Ed Watz, who found a blurb in EXHIBITOR'S TRADE REVIEW that "Johnny's New Car" with Harry Langdon was indeed filmed by Sol Lesser. Details here: http://littleelflangdon.blogspot.com/20 ... dence.html

Re: THE PILGRIM / First National alternate versions

I believe the negative of HEART TROUBLE had been already scrapped by Warners around 1953 due to advanced decomposition. Rohauer was given permission to personally search the WB vaults on both coasts but as we know not a single reel of HEART TROUBLE turned up, not even a trailer. Given the promotion...

Re: MACK SENNETT COLLECTION COMMENTARY TRACKS and ERRATA

Ha! There was no room left for anything more than what we did! Seriously, the material took up 99% of the available space on every disc.
