Re: A Great Keaton Impersonation for Christmas

I strongly second Richard's endorsement of this DVD. The Gary Moore Show with Gary doing his Buster Keaton skit was a big hit at our weekly Movie Night this past week.

William H. Cook

I'm trying to help out some of my buddies on a comic book forum. They are tracking down info on William H.

Re: Errol Flynn does the "Mirror Routine"

More recently (1999) the bit with the mirror was done in a two-part sixth season episode of The X-Files where Mulder's mind changes bodies with another person.

Re: El Brendel gets a mention in a modern film review??

Re: short comedies on EYE

Here's one I'm having trouble identifying. Maybe one of youse guys can ID it.

It's an Eddie Lyons and Lee Moran Star Comedy done for Universal probably in 1920.
