Re: APRIL FOOL (1920) reel two with Lloyd Hamilton

Also thanks to your sharp eyes, Richard, for questioning the curious player. And Frank, Sam's been collecting for ages. He's had loads of time and connections to amass all this stuff over the years. He's a great guy and I'm not so surprised he has all this stuff. I've even given him some rare old st...

Re: APRIL FOOL (1920) reel two with Lloyd Hamilton

Re: APRIL FOOL (1920) reel two with Lloyd Hamilton

Hi Si Com Lovers... As much as I also thought the actor resembles Stan Laurel, I'm pretty sure it's comic/stuntman Owen Evans who worked almost everywhere but never got anywhere. I tried to find a still of him for verification in my collection with no luck. Maybe some of you film collectors have him...

Re: Know what this is? II

I'm thinking this is one of the James Montgomery Flagg Comedies of which I know very little about.
But if you want to talk about Flagg "the illustrator," I'm in.

And oh yeah, can't wait to see your reconstruction of "She Sighed by the Seaside," Dave. That's an even rarer title!

Re: Ben Turpin - Step Forward (1922)

Hello Dave and Richard! Dave, thanks for the link to that Turpin short, "Step Forward." Have to say the print looks great and I wish there was more, it's a rarer title. Years ago Bill Sprague put the short on VHS which print I believe came from Richard's collection. More recently I was abl...
