Re: Will Rogers in State Fair on TCM

Re: Will Rogers in State Fair on TCM

In the early 80s I was production manager at the Tulsa PBS station. We were volunteered by the station manager to tranfer all the 16mm owned by the Will Rogers Memorial.

Re: Laurel & Hardy: The Essential Collection

Got mine today. Beautiful stuff. I'm thrilled to have this set! Since I have most of the films in 16mm I've seen them all a number of times, so my first move was to listen to all the commentaries. Only listened to Hog Wild so far. I'm really enjoying this.

Re: Laurel and Hardy on Blu-Ray...?

I got the blu-ray but haven't had a chance to look at it yet. I love the MGM/UA disc because it's the original Babes in Toyland and not a patched up March of the Wooden Soldiers print. What version is on the blu-ray? Does it have the original MGM titles?

Re: SLAPSTICON 2010 to unveil lost and unknown Chaplin Film

Paul, do you know the origin or age of the 16mm print? Was it something made for the home market?
