Re: WHEN CLUBS ARE TRUMPS (1917) Harold Lloyd

Is that Charlie Chase at 8:20?

The LOC has a print of this also but the LOC print has much more gas on it.

I opine that this film consists of two rejected one reelers melded together to fill out the 2-reel schedule.

Re: Unidentified Sid Smith

I'm pretty sure this is a Rock film and that is Alice. Joe Rock at this time was recruiting old time comedy stars like Slim Summerville, Lee Moran, Chester Conklin and Joe himself to support her in her early films with Rock. I think I see Jack Richardson in this also. Tenneck and Sava are the same c...

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

That picture of Evans from CAMERA proves he is not the soldier with Stan in MIXED NUTS. Didn't Stan have an ad of himself in a Special Pictures film in his scrapbook? It will great to see a filmography of Special Pictures. Special Pictures had the talent to have been a major shorts player but someho...

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

After looking at these grabs I don't think Teddy is the soldier in MIXED NUTS anymore but he sure resembles the gob in APRIL FOOL. IIRC Teddy died of shock from a tooth extraction around 1938. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v162/Tommie61/MIXEDNUTS-01.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v162/Tom...

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

Teddy is the butler in THE LUCKY DOG and THE EGG. He is also a soldier in MIXED NUTS.

I am convinced Stan plays his own grandmother in MUD AND SAND

Re: The Gown Shop

SteveR, Good call on Curtis McHenry. If any of you who have not seen the Christie short GOOFY GHOSTS (1928), please endeavor to do so as you will see how Curtis steals the short from Jimmie Adams, Eddie Baker, and Billy Engle. Kathleen Myers rhymes with Katherine McGuire, that's close enough isn't i...

The Gown Shop

A Frank Hayes researcher asked that I post this video. Other than Larry and Babe, there is Katherine McGuire, Dame Frank, Fred DeSilva, Spencer Bell, Otto Lederer, and Merta Sterling rounding out the cast. I corresponded with Fred DeSilva's nephew in the 90's and he told me that not long after this ...

Re: Liberty - (1929)

Blackhawks source material for this short was decomposing when they made their negative. You can see it in a Fin double take shot. The Tarbox print had some unique scenes in it, so this film is not complete (like 2ND 100 YEARS and THAT'S MY WIFE).
