Re: Vim / Jaxon Comedies

That is a super still, Bob. I love behind the scenes stuff. I'd love to chime in and help ID some of the faces, Joe, but they're too small for me! Any chance you can post a larger photo, Bob? I do recognize Bobby Burns holding the suitcase. Bor Enots probably knows them all! And Enots: I had several...

Re: short comedies on EYE

Thanks so much for posting the links, Joe. Just watched "Gertie's Gasoline Glide" and was good to see Billy Bevan playing the minister. But these clips are playing pretty jerkily for me, not a smooth run. Anyone else having the same problem? Most annoying! (but good stuff nonetheless). Ste...

Re: THE BOY FRIEND (1928) with Max Davidson

I haven't seen The Boy Friend , but Dino brings up a good point, re "the iceman": Could this be a scene from What Every Iceman Knows ? Don't have a still number & title list to search and compare to, but I did have a glass slide years ago for Davidson's Iceman . Sorry to digress from t...

Re: Largest Pie Baked: ID help please

Hello Richard and StevO, yes, it does look like Dot Farley to me as well. And Richard, it does look like Thelma Hill altho I've never seen her as a blonde that I can remember. Wait! Maybe it's during her Toots and Casper series (?). The girl just to our right of Thelma now looks like Carmelita Gerag...

Re: Largest Pie Baked: ID help please

Hello Hilde! Steve M's eyes must be much better than mine, I can't see much of anything! Would be great if you supplied larger scans. But with much squinting and facial distortion, I agree with Steve about Billy Bevan. I semi-agree about Carole Lombard but feel just as strong that it resembles Ruth ...

Re: Ben Turpin DVDs on Oldies.com

Hi Jim... I have "Turpin Time" and it's not bad, but it's not Kino. These were probably taken from 8mm film prints and aren't the sharpest nor professionally tweaked. I think the films are from Sam Sherman's collection, I saw his name somewhere on the box. The prints are flat, but really a...

Re: Guardian: Collector finds unseen Charlie Chaplin film in tin

Thanks for that link, Bruce. Gee, just seeing what very little footage they show, it looks like a slapdash collection of already known Chaplin film footage and other scraps from various films (including His New Profession as Richard mentioned, plus The Tramp , and who knows what else). There's proba...

Re: Mabel's Blunder - Who is Mabel's Brother?

Thanks so much, Brent! Hearing that from you (the surely exhausted Mack Sennett Ruler) is one of the biggest compliments anyone can get! Yes, I'm glad we found the name Peggy Page; she played such important parts in some of Charlie's films that it was a shame to leave her unintentionally ignored. We...
