Unidentified comedy clip

Postby Karen Owen » Thu Dec 18, 2014 4:40 pm

My name is Jennifer Harvey and I am a student at the Selznick School of Film Preservation at the George Eastman House. I have Karen's permission to use her account. I have an unidentified clip from the Everson collection that we think is from Mack Sennett's comedies, possibly directed by Del Lord because of the car stunts. Would appreciate it if you could take a look and give any advice that would help identify the film. www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_JLk-s1zYQ

We just consulted Brent Walker's great book and think it might be Wall Street Blues because we think it
is coming from the collection of clips that Everson created when he worked with Robert Youngson
on Golden Age of Comedy

Correction -- When Comedy was King, not Golden Age of Comedy

It's WALL STREET BLUES alright. Why is your footage flopped? The action is the other way around.

Hi Jennifer, pleased to meetcha!

The clip is definitely from Wall Street Blues, though I think your projected clip is flopped.

Please let us know when you post more comedy stuff. Thanks!
