CHARLEY CHASE AT HAL ROACH: THE TALKIES VOLUME TWO 1932-33 coming out this Tuesday

This forum is nearly identical to the previous forum. The difference? Discussions about comedy from the SOUND era.

Missed this but have just ordered. Thank you for making these releases possible.

While I'm sure it will be another 5 Star Home Run effort once I view the majority of the set I'll post my Amazon "review".

22 Amazon reviews in a weekend is a nice start, but there's a lot more of you out there who can make the effort, we're not impressed yet.

The reviewer's first comment ("As with volume 1 of this series, I have to begin by awarding this DVD five stars simply for existing") really gets to the heart of the matter, doesn't it?

I used to joke with my wife that if I ever got to see a complete print of THE SECOND 100 YEARS I could die happy. Done that -- now even own a print of it -- and with these wonderful films like the magnificent Charley Chase series turning up for the first time on video, I hope to stick around for a long time.

I, for one, am grateful that I can toss all those Chase shorts on VHS and DVD-R that I’ve gathered piecemeal at cons and odd airings on TCM. Still keeping my16mm Blackhawks, thank you.

It's really great that these have been made available - Charley Chase is a fairly recent discovery for me and I've thoroughly enjoyed both volumes of these talkies and am now eagerly awaiting a third volume! Commendations to everyone who made this happen - a lot of effort for (I guess) minimal commercial gain. It's only through these type of projects that this wonderful material is kept alive.

PS. I'm still hoping to live long enough to see a complete print of 'The Second 100 Years'!
