Re: THE ROUND-UP starring Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle

Ahh, but blu-ray looks soooooo nice.

Seriously, in a year that, in three months alone, has already brought us the Charley Chase Talkies V.1 and Marcel Perez V.2, this is the cherry on the icing on the cake. A gotta have. Congrats Paul!

Re: Okay-----NOW!: CHARLEY CHASE AT HAL ROACH: THE TALKIES VOLUME ONE 1930-31

I'm finding the Chases just keep getting better and better -- ONE OF THE SMITHS and SKIP THE MALOO both just made me grin like an idiot throughout, and THE PANIC IS ON is a hoot -- with a really fantastic tracking shot as Charley walks down a hallway from one office to the next. My habit is to watch...

Mary Ann Jackson is unquestionably the most underrated child actor of the silent era. She's a phenomenon in the pre-talkie MGM Our Gangs.

Simply the greatest release of 2018. Sure we’re only three weeks into January, but I can’t envision anything topping it. Kudos to you, Mr. Roberts!

Re: Nitrateville Answer Dept: Keaton Radio Appearances

My pleasure! But upon a re-listen, it's pretty obvious the whiskey's getting the better of Buster on the Rudy Vallee show.

Re: Yes Virginia, there's gonna be a Charley Chase Roach Talkie set

I don't have much to add to this conversation at the nonce beyond "Take my money!" -- I'm still gobsmacked every day by what my DVD shelf holds (the complete Chase and Keaton Columbias -- and the Shemps, Bessers and DeRitas too??) so I've got nothing but gratitude (and money) for those bra...

Re: The Authenticity of Buster Keaton

Thanks Paul - mostly for the excuse to spend the day with Mr. Potterton! The conversation is going to be a brilliant addition to the set; for an 86 year old gent Potterton's sharp as a tack!

Re: Laurel and Hardy Alive and Kickin'

Seriously, anyone who loves (or even likes) Laurel & Hardy need these books. The recordings are a revelation; the book's themselves are gorgeous. Finding reel 2 of THE BATTLE OF THE CENTURY was major; finding these recordings was monumental.
