Does "A Hero For A Night" exist?

A Michigan theater is looking for this Glenn Tryon Universal comedy since it was the openning night feature in 1927. Anyone here know? (I'll bet they do!)

Re: Hal Roach Oddity on Monday at 6:00am

Wasn't this his "test" film using a multi-lingual cast. This was another experiment before dubbing.

Talk about an embassassment of riches!
I got Steve Massa's book last week, and yesterday Richard's Hal Roach book and Steve Rydzewski's Ben Turpin book both arrived.
I wish I could take a week off from work and just read!

Re: Richard M.Roberts Banned from Nitrateville

It's pretty annoying listening to them whine.

Do you think this is part of the me generation? A film doesn't exist unless I can have a copy.
If I can't have it, don't bother restoring it!

I'm starting to sound like an old man. Get off my lawn!

Loved the Tom Snyder show. The one with David Niven was a classic!
