Re: Snark Ensemble to Play Slapsticon 2010 Mack Sennett show

I am looking forward to hering the Snark Ensamble in person . I have heard them on the two "All Day Entertainment" releases and have seen the documentary on them. Who is the other gentleman listed as an accompanist? I don't find any bio for him on the Slapsticon website. I am truly looking...

Re: Silent Comedy Mafia.com's 1st Anniversary

I don't generally have as much to contribute, but I love reading the discussions and participating when I have something worthwhile to add. I wasn't paying attention to the anniversary date - too busy getting excited about Slapsticon. Thanks for letting me in Godfathers, I will try not to bring sham...

Question - Color vs Sound

So, Most everyone here posts such schollarly material, so I do a lot of reading! I am not up tp the level of most of you here, so I can't add much. Then I was thinking............... the best thing about being the "student" in the room is that when everyone else knows so much more, it is a...

Re: SLAPSTICON 2010

I wouldn't refer to it as a "nice year's vacation", but that is just my opinion. I am impatiently counting down the days. I have my hotel room, and I will be sending in my reservation for the films ASAP. Looking forward to July.................................................................

Re: Roach Short Back on TCM

The Todd/Kelly short "Hot Money" is scheduled for 11:42 on Saturday.

This is a 1935 T/K and I think it is one of the ones released after Todd's death???

Re: Langdon Gag in Jimmy Fielder's Parade of Silent Has Beens

I did catch it, but have also seen it before. The naration ranges from silly to grating - especially for the stars who had already died by the time of the short. He tries to come up with different comments for each star, but for the decesed stars he fails (at times, miserably). I like it for the cli...

Re: Slapsticon 2010

I remember that the first year of Slapsticon (2003), the two festivals were the same time. That year both were on the 2nd weekend of July. It was mentioned that this was a problem for some, and the "Godfathers" agreed try not to compete for fans with SF. We have generally been the 3rd week...

DDD Sale on Kino

Hi, I saw on the top bar at Deep Discount that they were having a sale on Kino discs. Yes DDD is generally 30% to 33% off of retail price, but this is 50% off of the retail price of all Kinos. I believe that the sale goes until April 8, so you don't have that much time. I got a few discs that I want...

That caption would be great!

Superimpose a few silent comedians on the elephants, and the ad is complete!

Re: Max Davidson and Roach "Female Comedy Teams" coming to DVD

I think that if they lifted your article to sell the discs, I hope that they at least give you a free set ( well, one set from each collection).
