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

Yes, Dave, that Three Fatties clip is, like Richard says, from "How High Is Up?" Been on my most wanted list since about 1970 when I saw this exact same Funny Manns clip on TV. Love those thrilling edge top stunts. Tommie, unless I'm reading your post wrong, Jamison made much more than two...

Re: THE HOLLYWOOD KID (1924) Reel Two

Thanks for the additional info on The Hollywood Kid , Dave. Hearing that, but until my screening it, I'm guessing it's old footage from A Small Town Idol . My reason being the appearance of Marie Prevost who's been gone from Sennett a few years by this time. Plus Billy Bevan as a director is also co...

Re: THE HOLLYWOOD KID (1924) Reel Two

Hi Tommie! Yes, I once had His Hidden Purpose too, but in 8mm. Another I'd gotten from Tarbox. That was Chester Conklin, Marie Prevost, and Neal Burns. Haven't seen it in years. MoMA has a rare one, Love Loops the Loop , direct from the Dutch archives I believe, retitled Raci Palec . That was Murray...

Re: THE HOLLYWOOD KID (1924) Reel Two

Your Are Waitresses Safe? would sure look good on the set, Richard, to represent the gap in the few surviving Paramount-Sennett's. And what a cast: Turpin, Louise Fazenda, Slim Summerville, Glen Cavender, Wayland Trask, Jack Cooper, Teddy & Pepper, Tom Kennedy, Wallace Beery (for just a second),...

Re: THE HOLLYWOOD KID (1924) Reel Two

That's perfectly OK, Ed, and I appreciate the thought. But I can wait for Sennett Volume Two which should be here any day now, right? ;-) I forget all the titles Paul's gathering for the next volume, especially the Turpin's. I lent him my complete print of A Harem Knight a while ago, and there's sti...

Re: THE HOLLYWOOD KID (1924) Reel Two

To be honest with you all – and in all my many years watching and collecting Ben Turpin – I've still never seen the Turpin footage from "The Hollywood Kid". It's avoided me for over forty years! I think it was Brent Walker who told me (or maybe it was you, Ed?), that the Turpin footage was...

Re: WHEN CLUBS ARE TRUMPS (1917) Harold Lloyd

Nice guess, Tommie, and it does resemble Chase's "build."

But I don't think it's him; too tall. It's probably Roach player David Slim Voorhees.
This is from Motion Picture News, August 11, 1917:

Happy New Year Mafiosa!

Re: Fox Sunshine Comedy Clips

Hi Richard...

I see a few seconds of Chester and Heinie Conklin that I think is from the Sunshine Safe in the Safe.
Used to have a glass slide from the film that I think I gave to our good friend Joe Moore years ago.

Re: Unidentified Sid Smith

Well, if the clip is a Pizor, I guess we can probably eliminate these three titles: http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y12/mrbertiewooster/1927williampizorharemscaremsidsmith.jpg http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y12/mrbertiewooster/1926sidsmithdontforgetpizor.jpg http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y12/m...
