Re: Nitratevile Silliness: Silent Film Tragedies

proving nothing, there *does* appear to be a Technologico de Monterrey - http://www.itesm.mx/wps/portal?WCM_GLOBAL_CONTEXT= but I can't seem to find a "Mark H. Harris" as a member of its faculty. Working for a technical university myself, I can't say I'm particularly impressed by a "p...

Re: The Spy (1929)

what more do you want to know? I id'ed that still you had a few years ago. It's an early Paramount talkie short from 1929. RICHARD M ROBERTS Don't know why this didn't post before, but I'll try again: not me boss (though I would be interested in who *does* have a still from this and why.) I guess i...

Re: Nitrateville Correction Dept: Noah Beery Sr.

Allan Jenkins and Frank McHugh were always busy, not only in films and television, but also doing stage work (which is usually all-but-invisible to your average film historian, especially if it was non-Broadway work. No one has yet put together anything resembling a decent database of West-Coast Th...

requesting Help researching film grosses

Does anyone here have experience researching film grosses vs. negative costs? I know such information is available (at the Herrick?) for some/most/all MGM and WB features. I have no idea if there are any similar resources for Paramount, Universal and Fox (let alone shorts.) If anyone here could offe...

BILLBOARD - digitized at NYPL

Re: C C Burr and east coast production - 1923 edition

No Aubrey/Hardy Vitagraph short by that title was released, but Paradise Alley was what Vitagraph called their backlot tenement/slum set. Might anyone know of an Aubrey/Hardy short that might meet these two criteria: 1) was in production mid-June 1920 2) provided an excuse for a lot of female extra...
