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...

Re: New Buster Keaton talkie book from Bear Manor in 2015

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.

Henry Lehrman Podcast

I realize that NitrateVille has a shaky reputation among some of the SilentComedyMafia’s members, but for those of you who are interested in hearing more about Henry Lehrman, Mike Gebert just posted his interview with me discussing my book, MR. SUICIDE: HENRY "PATHE" LEHRMAN AND THE BIRTH ...

Re: MR. SUICIDE: HENRY "PATHE" LEHRMAN AND THE BIRTH OF SILENT COMEDY

You'll need to put it down eventually, Joe, otherwise your arms are going to grow very tired hefting all four pounds of it!

Kidding aside, I'm pleased to hear that you are finding it of interest; a lot of time and energy were spent on this one.
