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...

Larry Semon - The Head Waiter

I'm aware that this film has recently been restored and shown in a few places - does anyone know if it is likely to get a DVD release anytime soon?

When Comedy Was King - one happy viewer

Well, I’ve just finished watching ‘When Comedy Was King’ and wow! what a fantastic print. To think that we can see – and in excellent quality too – footage that is nearly 100 years old; we’re fortunate it’s even survived, let alone undergone restoration. Let’s hope the guys at Sprocket Vault release...

When Comedy Was King - restored DVD

Help!! I'm trying to get a copy of the recently released 'When Comedy Was King' DVD but Amazon won't ship internationally (I'm based in the UK). Does anyone know why this restriction is in place and if it's likely to be lifted? Or is it a case of trying to get the DVD direct from Sprocketvault? This...

Re: Laurel & Hardy - Capitol Films

Hi Richard,

Yes, that's the one. I picked up their 8mm print of 'Angora Love' which has the original titles and was curious what other Laurel & Hardy films they may have distributed.

Re: Silent Laughter Weekend in London

I'll see you there - most interested in the Laurel & Hardy sequence, especially the Robert Youngson prints. It should be good.

Gordon Berkow Collection

I recently found out from a Laurel & Hardy magazine that it is possible that the Gordon Berkow collection could contain a number of 'The Boys' films besides 'The Battle Of The Century'. Apparently, there may even be a complete copy of 'The Second One Hundred Years' and other rarities. Does anyon...
