Re: unknown Jimmy Aubrey

Re: REVIEW: CHAPLIN MUTUALS & MACK SENNETT V1

Richard M Roberts And if he can't see the brilliant chase sequence in that film for what it is, he needs his glasses fixed.

Re: MACK SENNETT COLLECTION VOL 1 Blu-Ray

Joe Migliore I'm willing to voice my pro-DVD sentiments. I guess the Flicker Alley site would be the appropriate forum for that. And I just sent it. (Pasquale, you might want to weigh in on this.)

Re: Q5 (late 60's) Spike Milligan two episodes

The weatherman sketch is hilarious. The way he mumbles his early line then continues comes across so simple yet a work of comic genius. It's a pleasure to finally see a couple Milligan's Q5 shows.

Re: HIS TAKING WAYS (1926) Al St John Biff Comedy

Glad to see this at 24fps too.

Comedy III Productions owns the name, likeness, copyright, trademark, etc, etc of The Three Stooges. Sony owns the Columbia shorts and features.

Re: THE PILGRIM / First National alternate versions

Richard M Roberts So, is that "Bound for Texas" song one of the great examples of Chaplin not being brilliant? Does it now have to endlessly ruin any version of THE PILGRIM shown due to Family decree? That and the "Swing, little girl, swing" title song opening THE CIRCUS. Pasquale
