Website criteria: all films made by Hal Roach/Hal Roach Studios; all films featuring Stan Laurel; all films featuring Oliver Hardy;
all films featuring Charley Chase; all films in the Our Gang series; and all actors who appeared in at least 1 film of any of the above.

This website is updated almost daily and is still being constructed. There will be some page design issues and alignment issues for a while....
Some "errors" on the site are in the process of being fixed, such as films listed as not being available on DVD
at the time of the page being last updated where the film is now available. Stuff like that.
If you find any errors please report them to this forum and I shall try to get to them a.s.a.p.

LATEST UPDATES ON THE SITE
FEB 18: Added Vern Trimble and Oscar Smith to the site.
FEB 17: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's Rough Seas (1931).
FEB 15: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's High C's (1930).
FEB 14: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's All Teed Up (1930). Also, I have now made the Charley Chase Menu much more accurate with the foreign titled films from 1930/1. Additional information added to the page for Mickey McGuire with a very unique cause of death!
FEB 13: Added Alvin Buckelew, Gene Reynolds, Cheryl Hopper, Eugene Lowe, Morris Grace, Bruce Grant, Raphael Dolciame, Ralph Hodges, Mickey McGuire, Tommy Dee Miller, Michael Miller. Updated the pages for Football Romeo (1938), Floyd Fisher, Becky Bohanon, Buddy Bowles, Charles Meakin, Dorothy Vernon, Malcolm Crosby and George Crosby with cast screenshots, birth dates and extra info. Thanks to Jim Jarvis, Brent Seguine and our Anonymous friend over on the forum.
FEB 12: Added some more stuff to the Risque page. Why? Because I can.
FEB 11: Completely stripped and restructured the page for Call Of The Cuckoo (1927). Now with credits, intertitle cards, stills, extra cast identified. Looks so much neater now! Added Geraldine Condon and Andy Shuford to the site. Adjusted the cast listing for Our Gang's Jubilo, Jr. (1924) - replacing the McGowan sisters who were previously wrongly identified.
FEB 10: Drina has managed to identify three more kids from Flaming Fathers - two of them are now added to the site: Frederick Carpenter and Phyllis Hurst. The third kid, David Durand, already has a place on the site - and a new film credit now! Drina has also identified Jackie Levine from The Sting Of Stings as well. Big thanks also to Ed Watz for supplying me and this website with the original title card for The Second 100 Years.
FEB 09: Thanks to Drina Mohacsi's great identification work on some of the kids in the Max Davidson film, Flaming Fathers, I have now added five new kids to the site: Bobby Newman, Mary Jane Milliken, Annabelle Magness, Artye Folz, and Gerald Pierce. Thanks also to Matthew Lydick for his help in this matter.
FEB 08: Been busy with coding to make the site better (in case you thought I had taken a break!) Added Dolores Brinkman and Tenen Holtz to the site.
FEB 04: Viewed and reviewed the Charley Chase film, The Sting Of Stings (1927).
FEB 02: Viewed and reviewed the Charley Chase film, Never The Dames Shall Meet (1927). Added Norma Varden, Florine McKinney and Larry Steers to the site.
FEB 01: Reason for lack of work on the site is due to ill health. Today I reinserted the page for Peter Mikkelsen and added many of the images he has provided for this website. I tried a new-style format whereby you can click the thumbnail on any image to show it in full size. Will be adding many more images to this page in due course. Will be treating this as an experimental test page to see if I can improve other pages on the site with image formatting.
JAN 25: Added Virginia Grey to the site.
JAN 20: Viewed and reviewed The Boy Friends' High Gear (1931), which I have to confess I really enjoyed and spent a lot of effort on. I was also glad to finally add one of the beautiful stills that was given to me by Fran Gilbert (Dick Gilbert's daughter) shortly before she passed away. Added Marion Byron's signature to the Autographs page, bringing the new total to 160.
JAN 18: Viewed and reviewed The Boy Friends' Blood And Thunder (1931). Added Joyce Coad, Ben Hall and Oscar Rudolph to the site.
JAN 16: Viewed and reviewed the first 2 minutes of the Vanity Fair Girls film Burglars Bold (1921). The full film is available on DVD but I do not have it.
JAN 15: Viewed and reviewed the Our Gang short, Spook-Spoofing (1928), which was released 91 years ago yesterday. Utterly ridiculous film.
JAN 14: Added Johnny Aber to the site.
JAN 13: Viewed and reviewed the Our Gang short, Tire Trouble (1924), which was released 95 years ago today.
JAN 09: Viewed and reviewed the utterly awful Our Gang short, Reunion In Rhythm (1937), which was released 82 years ago today.
JAN 07: Viewed and reviewed Earl Mohan's The Bouncer (1925). My only satisfaction from enduring this ten minutes of crap was finding so many actors in the film which were not listed elsewhere.
JAN 05: A few new additional cast added to both The Rat's Knuckles and The Battle Of The Century thanks to Jesse. Added Wilkie C. Mahoney to the site.
JAN 04: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's The Rat's Knuckles (1925) which was released 94 years ago today.
