So who is George and where does this interview come from? How much more is there? Absolutely fascinating.

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 going to write the webmaster and see if they can provide any info.


They have a second Sennett clip in which Sennett discusses W.C. Fields:

There are also brief interview clips of Harold Lloyd and Mae West and a hilarious news report about Chaplin having his visa revoked. Hilarious because the story just drips with venom and is delivered in the snarkiest tone possible. And as soon as it is over, the news reader says, "stay tuned for our review of 'Limelight'". Yeah, that's gonna go smoothly.
