Re: Well blow me down with an anchovy.

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)
