Billy House shorts

Postby christopher connelly » Tue Aug 05, 2014 5:37 pm

Here's a little something from FILM DAILY I never heard before:

Apparently, in 1930, Billy House made a/several shorts at Astoria.

I'm specifically interested in one that featured Shubert showgirl Helen Tucker and Hammerstein girl Gloria LaBow.

Yep, Billy House made eight two-reel comedy shorts for Paramount shot at Astoria, they are:

1930

Aug 30 RESOLUTIONS

Dec 20 OH TEDDY

1931

May 23 THOU SHALT NOT

June (?) THE HEADACHE

Aug 15 BULLMANIA

Sept 19 RETIRE INN

Nov 15 OUT OF BOUNDS

1932

Apr 1 THE DUNKER


Yes, all or most of them survive due to having been in the U M & M/ NTA television package of Paramount shorts, I have one of them, cannot remember which one at the moment, possibly OUT OF BOUNDS, but it is neither particularly memorable or funny, and fellow film collector Jim Reid has THE DUNKER.

The one Gloria LaBow appears in is OH TEDDY.
