Edgar Kennedy short THANKS AGAIN

Can someone please tell me if Edgar Kennedy's RKO short THANKS AGAIN (1931) is located at LOC? I looked through their online database and couldn't find it, but the db seemed to be incomplete. Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Errol Flynn does the "Mirror Routine"

It's Nick Stuart. I've seen him in some early talkies and also, confirmed it with Steve Massa ... So it must be him! Thanks Robert (and also Steve)! Incidentally, the photos you provided for Steve's superlative LAME BRAINS & LUNATICS are outstanding! Wish I could be there at Slapsticon with all...

Re: Richard M.Roberts Banned from Nitrateville

Well, I might have joined the bandwagon here save for the promise of scantilly-clad Max Davidson & Spec O'Donnell. Thoes cheesekake shots alone should be worth the price of the book. Wait until you see the photo of Charley Chase dressed in a girl's bathing suit on p. 103, Agnes. With pictures l...

Re: Maxine Semon

Can you please avoid being so vague in your responses Michael? Geez! You leave no stone unturned, do you! Thanks, Jim, and Joe. David Shepard was proofing my manuscript of the Mutual-Chaplin book. In one of his emails he wrote, "You are a jaw-dropping researcher." I only wish there was su...

Re: Marcel Perez, R.I.P.

Thank you Bob for sharing this important postscript on the demise of Marcel Perez. When I stayed at Mabel Langdon's home in 1979 she was living on Sweetzer Avenue in Hollywood, not far from from the Perez's family residence address that you had uncovered. I recall Mabel saying that the homes in that...

Also ordered mine yesterday through Amazon.uk. It's the only way to circumvent the EU's 19% import fees on USA purchases, not to mention a 20-mile junket to the German Customs House for a half hour of paperwork...

Re: MR SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON w/Buster Keaton

Thanks Richard - I let them know at N-ville and elsewhere that you had posted this discovery here. I also found out that a particular silent comedian site translates the word "mafia" as "12345." Wonder what that is about...
