Re: Ed Wynn introduces "Silent Television"

Keaton appeared on an episode of CBC's CLOSE-UP (April 1, 1962) titled THREE COMEDIANS. Frank Willis introduces the program while Bob Quintrell interviews Buster Keaton, Bert Lahr and Eddie Foy Jr. Toward the end of the program Buster gives a fantastic pie throwing demonstration which is not much di...

Locomotives and Comedy

Re: Mack Sennett Audio Interview

The site lists no source or credits, the various Sennett bios confirm nothing, and the usual online searches turn up the same. It is not the Turning Point interview, the text of which can be easily found online, and it isn't from the W.C. Fields "Biography in Sound" tribute (1956) so I'm g...
