Re: Unidentified Bud Jamison, Glen Cavender & Ton of Fun!

Assuming this is from MY SALOMY LIONS, Merta Sterling appears in a harem scene as "Fattemma"! Fred Fishback wrote and directed.

Has anyone else read the book SPECTERS OF SLAPSTICK AND SILENT FILM COMEDIENNES by Maggie Hennefeld? If so, how did you like it?

Re: Ouida Hill

I think you have it, Richard. Thelma's roles at Century followed on the heels of GEORGE THE WINNER and the earlier HELPFUL AL, and someone has even added her name to the credits of the former film at IMDb.com. Thanks!

Ouida Hill

I've been digging into Century and Stern Brothers Comedies, figuring them to be a natural extension of my L-Ko research. I've run across several mentions of an actress credited as Ouida Hill, but I can't find anything about her anywhere, and her name doesn't pop up anywhere in Steve Massa's excellen...

Re: Lloyd Hamilton Silent Comedian DVD

This is a wonderful collection, Dave; thanks so much for putting it together and all your hard work doing so. It's great to finally have a copy of HIS MUSICAL SNEEZE with translated intertitles! Having just viewed DYNAMITE, I was amused to see several gags reused from Henry Lehrman's A TWILIGHT BABY...

Online Newspaper Archives

For those of you with experience with any of the online newspaper archives, what are the pluses and minuses of each?

What's a four year wait among friends? I for one am eagerly awaiting its publication, and will plunk down my hard-earned cash for a copy as soon as it's announced! Thank you for a work that promises to cast Keaton's later work in a far more positive light that some of its predecessors.

Re: Henry Lehrman Podcast

That's great news about Frank's return. Now I can re-download all those old podcasts and save them this time ... just in case! I look forward to all his future interviews, and revisiting the old ones.
