WEISS-O-RAMA now up on Youtube

Postby Richard M Roberts » Fri Jan 14, 2022 5:07 am

Just to let you know, the Youtube channel Cult Cinema Classics

https://www.youtube.com/c/CultCinemaClassics/videos

has licensed some product from Kit Parker Films and is putting them up, including a number of titles from WEISS-O-RAMA both with and without my commentaries.

So if you haven’t bought the DVD (and why the hell haven’t you? It’s been out for like fifteen years and is still available you pikers), here’s a chance to sample the Weiss Brother comedy product and still make Kit a few sheckels.

Here’s THE COCKEYED FAMILY (1928) with Ben Turpin:

and with my commentary:

Here’s KEEP SMILING (1928) with Jimmy Aubrey:

and with my commentary:

Here’s the Hairbreadth Harry comedy SIGN THEM PAPERS(1927):

Here’s Poodles Hanneford in BETTER BEHAVE (1928):

I'm sure this is preaching to the choir, but I unequivocally recommend this set. The films look great, and they're loaded with good gags. I do think Jack Cooper is funnier as the villain in the Hairbreadth Harry comedies than Jimmy Aubrey, but that's just me.

Great stuff, Richard. You guys did a great job with this set. The prints, the packaging...

A great collection that should be in all the homes of the film lovers.
