Re: Becoming Charley Chase - July 28 Release - DDD Sale

Deep Discount just sent out notices that their summer sale is starting. Lucky for us that it was postponed, since it would have been over by now, normally. Since it is later this year, it will run until August 2. Since this will now pass the release date of "Becoming Charley Chase", I now ...

Play nice or I'll take away your Charley Chase for two weeks.

Paul, can you do that?
I know that you can withold Arbuckle & Our Gang, but can you take away Charley Chase too?
Does David Kalat have any say in this?

Re: Becoming Charley Chase - July 28 Release

The e-mail response that I recieved from DDD was - absolute crap...........................So I did call them. I was told that the sale will go on, but it will be a little later. Hopefully it will fall late enough for me to get "Becoming Charley Chase" in this sale, but not so late that I ...

Re: Arbuckle a Founder of United Artists?

I have never seen Arbuckle's name mentioned in any of the writings about the founding of UA before. He must not have been in the relm of possibilities for very long. It does make sense. He was such a huge draw that he was one who had the money and the popularity to "take a chance" on such ...

Re: Becoming Charley Chase - July 28 Release

I just e-mailed Deep Discount, and I have a phone number to call them if I need to do that.

I will post any news that I get.

It won't help with the Chase release just now unless the sale gets delayed ( it is only on current DVDs- no pre-orders with the sale price).

Re: Becoming Charley Chase - July 28 Release

Deep Discount isn't showing any artwork yet.

Their price is really good on this one.

By the way, has there been any word on their semi-anual sale? It is usually 20% off, but this November it was 25% off!
They usually have the June sale going by now.

Re: "The Keystone Kid" review?

My Hubby picked up this book for me a few years back and I put it on the shelf and figured that I woudl "get to it eventually". I wasn't in a real hurry. I then read a review someone wrote of it and decided to push it up to "next book to read". I was glad that I did. The pictures...

Re: Sacred Cows

I don't think that Jesus became funny ( they couldn't find a way to balance comedy with sacrolidge for quite a while with Him) until Mel Brooks came along.
