SMART WORK (1931) Billy Dooley

Postby Richard M Roberts » Wed Feb 14, 2024 12:37 am

This Roscoe Arbuckle-Directed Educational Cameo Comedy may have been Billy Dooley's first talkie (he had gone back to Vaudeville when Christie let him and his other silent comedians go in 1929). Released December 27, 1931 and featuring Billy with Addie McPhail (Mrs. Arbuckle):

This print is shorn about four minutes ( I have a nice old original with original opening titles), so even the Atlas prints of the one-reelers can sometimes be trimmed.
