RIP Susan Miller, Ouilotta Hemoglobin in "Sucker"

Her imdb page is here, and her lasting achievement was playing the cute Ouilotta Hemoglobin in Never Give a Sucker an Even Break. Of interest to the Arizona mafioso, she spent her final years in Phoenix. Did anyone meet her?

Re: Brother Theodore/Jerry Lewis/Merv Griffin (1966)

I "get" most performers even if I don't find them funny or moving. I never got Brother Theodore. He didn't seem like he was playing a nutty character, like Professor Irwin Corey or Rip Taylor. He seemed to be genuinely paranoid/schizophrenic. And it felt like the height of cruelty to be pa...

Re: Reconstructed version of Chaplin's THE PROFESSOR

The most interesting part is that we always assumed that Prof. Bosco was meant to be a completely different character. Now we know it's an older Charlie beaten down by poverty. Kind of chilling.

Re: HIS HOME SWEET HOME (1919) Larry Semon

Vimeo or even DailyMotion is a friendlier host for videos. You get fewer views than on YT, but most of the things we like are of interest to a select audience anyway. I'll miss your YT channel Tommie, but hope it resurfaces somewhere else someday.

Murnau, Borzage and Fox Box Set

This has been out for about a decade now, but the high sticker price ($240 retail!) has kept it out-of-reach for many of us. Now Daedalus Books has it on sale for just $50, and you can knock off another $5 if you sign up for their e-catalog. This is likely the liquidation price so once these are gon...

Silentology Blog Mentions Several Mafioso Products in Her Year-End Review

I enjoy checking in on Lea Stans' Silentology blog from time to time. the author has an unpretentious, breezy writing style. In her year-end review she mentions several books and DVD's produced by mafioso, including Thomas Reeder's Henry Lehrman book and Sprocket Vault's Mysterious Airman.
