Re: TIME IS MONEY! THE CENTURY, RAINBOW, AND STERN BROTHERS COMEDIES OF JULIUS AND ABE STERN

My lovely wife bought me a copy for our anniversary. I'm up to the 1919-1920 "season", and I'm really enjoying the ride. I've heard Steve Massa mention the Universal Joker and Century comedies many times. I don't think I've seen more than a few, but I'm now intrigued enough to seek out mor...

Well, hooooooow do you like that? I know Educational shorts, especially talkies, get a bad rap, but these Joe Cook shorts are pretty good overall.

Re: Trailer for THE CAT'S PAW (1934)

Just my humble opinion: I know MOVIE CRAZY has its fans, but for me, THE CAT'S PAW provides a tantalizing glimpse of the Harold Lloyd that could have been. This characterization was a good fit for the now-mature (and somewhat prissy-sounding) Lloyd, who abandoned his boyish go-getter far too late. S...

Re: THE CAMERAMAN (1920) Billy Franey

One of my favorite "little", or perhaps "minor", comedies. Always a pleasure to see it. About ten or fifteen years ago, I was struggling to remember the title. Someone was able to identify it from my description of the running gag.
