UP FOR GRABS!


I have a spare copy of THE DANCING MASTERS on BLU-RAY/DVD (combo pack) up for grabs.
I bought two copies of it from a Danish website, so I have one spare which I don't need.

What you need to know:
The DVD is Region 2, and the Blu-Ray is Region-FREE (I think!)

Those interested in this FREE offer (I will send it to you, and pay postage costs myself) please register your interest by "liking" my Facebook link where I am advertising it, or you can write to me either on my forum or by e-mail.

HOW IT WILL BE DECIDED:
Everybody who expresses an interest in the item will be placed in a hat, and I shall do a small friendly competition between them to determine who gets it.  Good luck.

Please make your bid for it (express your interest) before Friday of this week.

Please note: this is a stock photo; the real item is sealed and has Danish writing on the front (but the film is in English).
 
Number of people who have asked to be considered so far = 17

What is "Another Nice Mess" and what can you expect to find on this website?
Well, let's answer the first part first - it is so called because I want to bring the awareness of fans who sometimes mis-quote Oliver Hardy's famous line inasmuch that it is "Another NICE Mess" as opposed to "Another FINE Mess".  Also, because the site has undergone so many transformations, formats and ideas over the years that "Mess" seems to fit quite well!

As for the content on the site; it breaks down into these categories:
-Reviews and screenshots from every film ever made* by Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Charley Chase and Our Gang (*subject to availability).
This includes all pre- and post-Roach solo films by the actors mentioned as well as the post-Roach Our Gang films.  I have also tried to include as many Hal Roach-produced films made at his studio that I am able to review.
So, included on the site you will find the films which featured Stan Laurel when he was working for Joe Rock; Babe Hardy when he was teamed with Larry Semon, Billy West and the like; Charley Chase's smaller, supporting roles at Keystone in the mid 1910s as well as the 20 films he made for Columbia between 1937-1940.  Plus, of course the continuation of the Our Gang film series when MGM took over between 1938-1944.  That is the main priority of the work on the site.  And because this is predominantly a Hal Roach-orientated site (though not exclusive to that fact), I have added several of the series made by his studio such as THE BOY FRIENDS, THE TAXI BOYS, ZASU PITTS & THELMA TODD, THELMA TODD & PATSY KELLY, MAX DAVIDSON, WILL ROGERS, PAUL PARROTT, SNUB POLLARD and HAROLD LLOYD, to name but a few.

Short biographies are available on most actors listed on the site, but the films listed on their pages are only those which meet the criteria mentioned above.  Each actor's page will identify on it clearly which films from their filmography is listed (this will usually just be all the films they made with Hal Roach, but will also include films not made with Roach, but which also starred Laurel, Hardy or Chase - or the post-Roach Our Gang films).
So, that's it basically.

QUICK LINKS:
The complete A-Z of the site
All the films covered on this site (you can also click individual icons at the top for their respective lists)
All the actors covered on this site (known as the "Hall Of Fame")

As this project is ongoing, if anybody would like to take a crack at making some screenshots of the cast from any of the films on this site which hasn't been covered, please feel free to submit them to me @ lordheath1972@yahoo.co.uk

One last thing - please bear in mind the site is still under construction and some pages need a facelift, repair, updating or re-formatting.  I am slowly getting there... patience is, well... you know...
