Re: Charlie Chaplin and Sally Rand

Good call! It makes you wonder if Chaplin immediately thought of the joke while watching the film.

Re: THE OLD WALLOP (1927) Our Gang

I finally got around to watching this. It's great to see another long-lost Our Gang silent; what are there about three still missing? Wheezer provides a great ending, though it's a little unnerving to see the Rascals in Harold Lloyd territory. (More so than say Laurel & Hardy in LIBERTY.) The re...

Re: WEISS-O-RAMA on sale through Amazon from Sprocket Vault

For me, the Snub Pollard shorts were the big draw, but I enjoyed watching them all. I was particularly surprised by Jimmy Aubrey, from whom I don't expect much, delivering some solid laughs. This is the coda to the silent comedy era, and genuinely hope to see another volume of Weiss Brothers comedie...

Re: Greenbriar Picture Shows: STOP, LOOK, AND LAUGH (1960)

Thank you; I just saw an earlier post where Tommie Hicks asked the same question. What made me think of it was a blog somebody started to raise awareness of HATS OFF. Well...it could happen.

Re: MITT THE PRINCE (1928) Snub Pollard, Marvin Loback

It's always a pleasure to see Snub. These imitation Stan & Ollie shorts aren't bad, and he seems to work well with Loback.
