|LATEST UPDATES ON THE SITE|
MAY 23: Viewed and reviewed Snub Pollard's All Dressed Up (1920), which was released 99 years ago today. Updated and corrected some information relating to actress Hazel Howell thanks to Jim Jarvis' brilliant work and research.|
MAY 22: Viewed and reviewed a terrible piece of crap - Our Gang's Tired Business Men (1927), which was released 92 years ago today. Awful film. Added Ruth Robinson to the site. [thanks to Matthew Lydick]
MAY 19: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's Nurse To You! (1935), following a request from Robert Winslow (co-founder of this website's Back Lot Tour.) This bumps Sydney Jarvis, Harry Bernard and Baldwin Cooke up the ladder in the Top 200 list with these extra finds. Also added Frank Darien to the site.
MAY 18: Tidied up the page for Great Guns with some new lobby cards and much better page layout. Also added some very interesting information to Sam Lufkin's bio - courtesy Jesse Brisson's research.
MAY 17: Viewed and reviewed a really delightful Charley Chase comedy from Columbia; South Of The Boudoir (1940). Added Helen Lynd, Stanley Brown and Bert Young to the site.
MAY 16: Tidied up the page for Our Wife (1931), also adding 11 new stills.
MAY 15: Added Phyllis Holt, Jackie Banning, Beverly Lorraine Smith and Therese Bonner to the site.
MAY 13: Added Janet Comerford, Beverely Baldey and Jack Lindquist to the site.
MAY 12: Added Voight Williams to the site.
MAy 11: Spencer Williams is now restored to the site following confirmation of his appearance in "Pass The Gravy" [ref: Steve Massa]. Not Matthew Tijuana Jones after all. I must admit I was suspcious of this but I usually trust Steve's judgment.
MAY 10: Viewed and reviewed a rarely-seen Oliver Hardy film which he made in 1918 called Distilled Love (1920). Added Alice Howell and her husband Dick Smith to the site.
Updated the page for Matthew Tijuana Jones with two new film entries (The Battle Of The Century; Pass The Gravy - both identified by Steve Massa). I had "Spencer Williams" listed as the cook in "Pass The Gravy", so that now means Spencer Williams is eliminated from the website. Added Patty Kelly to the site.
MAY 07: Added Harold Wertz to the site. Major page overhaul and improvement for Our Gang's Choo-Choo! (1932), which celebrates its 87th anniversary today. Added credits, screenshots for Sherwood Bailey, Wally Albright, Patsy Britten, removed some images, improved other images, added lobby cards, added some missing cast members - including Matthew Tijuana Jones as the train porter (really pleased with myself for this one!), compiled the unidentifieds into one neat montage, and put the cast in the correct billing order. A big, tidy job. This was one of the very first films I reviewed on the site - 8 years ago. What a mess.
MAY 06: Added Paul Everton, Richard Neill and Irving Pichel to the site. Upgraded the screenshots for Our Gang's Your Own Back Yard (1925) using the restored DVD print from Robin Cook (the screenshots previously on the site were from an inferior print). The film, along with THE LOVE BUG is available directly from Robin @ firstname.lastname@example.org. I would urge any fan of these films to support the release.
MAY 02: Viewed and reviewed Snub Pollard's Drink Hearty (1920). Added Edith Depew and her sister Florence Depew to the site.
APR 28: Viewed and reviewed Snub Pollard's Punch The Clock (1922).
APR 27: Viewed and reviewed Snub Pollard's Get Busy (1924), which was released 95 years ago today. Also, Harold Lloyd's Ring Up The Curtain (1919), which was released 100 years ago today.
APR 24: Added D. Coburn to the site. Wish I knew more details on this actor.
APR 23: Added Orland Bush to the site.
Due to an oversight on my part (I am getting old) I noticed that I had left Symona Boniface out of the A-Z, so she is now in. It also promotes her into the Top 200 (now 240) page as well.
APR 22: Upgraded the page for Me And My Pal (1933). I noticed that the page for actor Charles McMurphy needed to be updated too, so I did that and it turns out that he has 13 film credits and not the 7 I had listed. So, welcome to the Added Top 200, Charles!
APR 21: Added Oscar Henning to the site.
Added autograph for Bull Montana.
APR 20: Added several new stills and lobby cards for Big Business (1929).
Viewed what little footage I have for Harold Lloyd's Crack Your Heels, which was released 100 years ago today.
APR 19: Page overhaul for Madame Mystery (1926) with new lobby cards, poster and tighter editing in the synopsis.
APR 18: Added Bertha Kennepohl to the site.
Added 4 new stills for Call Of The Cuckoo (1927), courtesy of Peter Mikkelsen.
New Autographs added for John Wayne, Billy West and Ben Turpin.
Added date of death for Our Gang actress Dorothy Morrison, thanks to James Harper.
APR 17: Considerable page tidy-up on The Music Box. Added an experimental "On This Day" banner to the home page which I will endeavour to update daily. Also added the popular Top 200 page/icon to the menu bar at the top of the page with a brand new icon. Added Madison S. Lacy to the site.
APR 16: Viewed and reviewed 2 prints of Harold Lloyd's High And Dizzy (1920). Damn, I really hate watching this guy and his films. Always so many cast members to try and find; it's an impossible task. Added Charles Bilkey and Charles Holmes to the site. New film credit found for Frank Terry, which helps him climb the ladder in the Top 200 list. Updated the page for Next Week-End after two more cast members were identified (Estelle Etterre and Sydney Jarvis - who are both in the Top 200 list as well), plus 5 new stills supplied to the site from Richard Finegan - all now added. Thanks Jesse, RWB, and RF. All this, plus £60 donations today.... I'd say this was a pretty good day!
APR 14: Added Jackie Williams, Billy Seay, Chic Sales Jr., Edward Norris, Edward Fielding, Walter Soderling, Morris Ankrum, Erville Alderson and Jamie Kauffman to the site.
APR 13: Viewed and reviewed The Taxi Boys' Call Her Sausage (1933). Added David Voorhees to the site.
APR 10: Added Ned Norman to the site.
APR 09: Viewed and reviewed a really painfully awful Hal Roach-produced 'comedy' called Lucky Beginners (1935). Originally meant to be part of the Irvin S. Cobb series, this was a one-off 'special' which was made to fulfill the series. Cobb doesn't appear (thank god - it couldn't have possibly have got any worse!) I have added the cast members who weren't already listed on the site now with their own pages: Ted Claire, John Lutz, Tarzan Goldberg, Harry O'Donovan, Ted Press, Charles Murdy, Beverly Burkes, Junior Smythe, Alan James, Leon Schindler, Elsie Jones, Georgia Jones, Mary Garden and The Three Rascals Of Rhythm.
In other news, I have been sent some more screenshots from A Regular Pal which reveal two more actors present in the film: Charles Stevenson and William Gillespie. These shots have now been added to the relevant pages and bumps both actors up in their total film credits.
APR 05: Added a new film/page to the site: Beatrice LaPlante in A Regular Pal (1920). Read description for details. This find also bumps up all the known stars in the film in their Top 200 list.
APR 04: Viewed and reviewed the All Stars' Feed 'Em And Weep (1928) - finding Silas Wilcox, Chet Brandenburg and Charley Lloyd as three of the diners, which adds to their total tallies for Hal Roach films and increases their rankings in the Top 200 list. Added Rose Plumer, Gaston Glass and Johnny Fox to the site.
APR 03: Just finished a marathon session on compiling a complete print of Charley Chase's Limousine Love (1928). Stayed up all night and worked 20 hours to fix this. I noticed the Kinowelt DVD was missing several short scenes and a few intertitle cards. Using a beaten-up copy of the film that I have, I have constructed a complete version of the film using all the best available footage and inserting all the original titles in their correct places. I am happy to offer a download file of this to anybody who cares to offer a £1 donation to the site. This was extremely tedious and difficult work and editing so I don't feel this is unreasonable.
APR 01: Added Leota Lorraine, Robert Lentz and Joyce Kay to the site.
