Re: Dickie Moore RIP

Even though he only appeared in eight of the Our Gang shorts, they made an impression. One of my earliest memories of the series is Stymie wrenching Dickie's stiff neck into the correct position in FREE WHEELING, fixing it in the process. I also prefer Moore's OLIVER TWIST (1933) to later versions, ...

Bobby Vernonburns

I've seen two Bobby Vernon shorts in which he is billed as "Bobby Burns"; Was this the work of a television syndicator?

My book on Lehrman is due to BearManor Media in May 2016, so I'd love to be able to write about this film from personal viewing. Any help would be much appreciated.


I know this isn't very helpful, but I cannot wait for that book.

REG'LAR FELLERS (1941)

I just enjoyed watching Grapevine's DVD of REG'LAR FELLERS, featuring Alfalfa Switzer (and Henry Lee, who brandished the paddle in MAIL & FEMALE). It's a clean, sharp print, with only a few splices; it must be hard to find great prints of PRC features. I can't help wondering if Hal Roach had mad...
