Re: Two Weiss Bros. Questions

I really enjoyed seeing that Bud Duncan Weiss Brothers short at the last Slapsticon, though it had sustained some damage. (At the time I was still hoping for a second collection of Weiss-O-Rama, and wondering if SOUR MILK would be included.) Did he work there long, or was it a one-off?

Re: A Merry Mafiosi Christmas

I received two gifts worth noting here: First was the Charley Chase Scrapbook compiled by Brian Anthony & Bill Walker, a great gift for any Chase fan. The other was the original cut of Atoll K from Cornerstone Media International; it clocks in at 97 minutes, longer than any other print of Utopia...

Re: Silent Laughter Event

Brilliant montage, Dave! I wish I could have been there. I don't suppose there's any audio of David Wyatt and Kevin Brownlow discussing the Keaton documentary.

Re: Greenbriar Comedy Team Discussions

As a child, I had regular exposure to Abbott & Costello; WPIX had the whole Universal package, and would run one every Sunday morning. I loved them all, but as I discovered more classic comedies (Stan & Babe, Bill Fields, and The Marx Bros.), my opinion of Lou Costello's character waned. Bud...
