A number of newsreel treasures and rushes (previously only available in small, heavily compressed watermarked previews or purchased for full licensing fees, if I recall correctly) are already online in comparatively nice quality, including the likes of Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy, Lupino Lane and Grock. Great news indeed.

Saw it too. Quite wonderful, isn't it, Uli? But where to start watching?

Here is an early Max Linder comedy.
