Re: Slapsticon Notes: TAKING THE COUNT (1929) Ben Turpin

Years ago I had a complete and gorgeous print of this one, Richard. Later it was one of several I had sold to a 16mm comedy collector named Dan Bursik. It's not one of Ben's best for the little company, agreed, but would have been great to see again on Weiss-A-Rama Two. Also in the cast were Joe Bon...

Re: BRING HOME THE TURKEY (1927) Our Gang

Hi Tommy. No, doesn't look like Joe Roberts to me. Besides, I think he'd been dead for a few years when this film was made.

Re: Answering Nitratevile General Jackassery

Richard... You are in a respected and educated class by yourself along with the rest of we merry mafioso, your friends and fans. I too get annoyed by silly things wherever they appear such as trying to ID a familiar face. I'll admit few faces are occasionally hard, some may not even be actors. In mo...

Thanks for the heads up on this enjoyable Larry Semon comedy, Richard.

Also saw William McCall as a cop, and Owen Evans as Blanche's mop.

Re: Mabel maybe?

No bout a doubt it. Remember the Kim Carnes song, "She's Got Mantan Moreland Eyes"? Positively Mabel. I'm 200% sure.

Re: WEISS-O-RAMA on sale through Amazon from Sprocket Vault

Friends, this is a great set. I really enjoyed the few Ben Turpin comedies on the collection, two I'd never seen before. The Turpin's alone are worth your investment of this DVD. Plus you also get Snub Pollard comedies, Poodles Hannaford, and other goodies that the Weiss Brothers produced back in th...

Re: Sennett in the Kodascope Library

Well said, Richard. I think the Pathe people blew out their library stock of films to recoup all previous losses. There may be mention of a sale in the pages of the old film journals at Lantern, Hilde. A lot of people saw gold (or silver) in the film and thought it would be a good investment and che...

Re: Three of a Kind

Hi Jim!

The only guy I know, of the four you question, is number three: BILLY FRANEY.

The other three guys may get billing in other films, but I don't know them.

Steve Massa might if he's seen the film. Or just post some frame grabs if you can.

Re: ROMEO & JULIET (1924) - Ben Turpin

Hilde, you certainly know your way to this man's heart! Would be great to sew this one back together as originally released, I'd love to see it all or most of it. Thanks so much for sharing these images and for all your - and your teammates - hard work at EYE. And thanks for keeping the memory and w...
