Re: Virtual Charlie Chaplin Days in Niles This Weekend

A follow-up to the Shoulder Arms screening. It is Dan Kamin's 1960's print of the 1920's re-release by Pathe, not the original 1918 version. May be the closest we ever get to see tho.

Just remembered that I posted this in March. But that version might not have had English titles, so enjoy!

Re: CHARLEY CHASE AT HAL ROACH: THE TALKIES VOLUME TWO 1932-33 coming out this Tuesday

A rave review from The Lost Laugh e-zine. Better late than never but I think they only publish one or two issues a year. They also announce the Harry Langdon set. Download issue 12 from here: https://thelostlaugh.com/

Re: legendary vaudevillian Joe Cook 1925

That’s great. I always wondered how anyone could build a career out of telling a shaggy dog story about four Hawaiians. But I see he has other talents.
