No Place Like Jail

Does anyone know if the Stan Laurel film 'No Place Like Jail' exists? I've read a number of articles which say it was available from Emgee Films on Super8 / 16mm - but surely that must be old information as I thought they went out of business years ago. Can anyone confirm what the current position a...

It will be an interesting watch. I have seen some of these films and do have an incomplete copy of 'The Candy Kid' - is the version made from your print the entire film? Also, on the subject of Billy West, I have a minute and a half's footage from 'Playmates' - do you know if this is all the footage...

Re: NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS (1931) Edgar Kennedy, Arthur Housman

Just watched this - hilarious. Thanks for pointing us to it…I've always liked Edgar Kennedy and it's good to see Arthur Housman too, as I think he doesn't get the recognition he deserves.

Now I'll Tell One

Does anyone know if there is a decent copy of the extant second reel anywhere? All I've ever seen is a very poor copy of a VHS tape...

Stolen Jools

Can anyone tell me whether it is possible to get an uncut copy of this all-star short? I'm not aware of it being commercially available but I'm hoping that someone may know differently...

It's A Gift

Just watched this again recently - what an excellent film! Very creative and a remarkably good idea (am thinking of trying something similar with my gas-guzzler!).

Re: Larry Semon - The Head Waiter

Thanks for that Rob - I look forward to their release. Will the DVDs only include complete films, or will they also contain some of those where only fragments remain e.g. 'Galloping Ghosts', 'Say It With Babies', 'Freckled Fish'? I know that it's entire films that people typically want to see, but p...
