LATEST UPDATED/REVIEWED FILMS LATEST UPDATED/ADDED ACTORS
LATEST UPDATES ON THE SITE
MAR 18: Added Bonnie Lynn to the site. Crazy Craig has come up with his most "beautiful" women from these films. Erm... viewer discretion is advised when you take a trip through Blanche's Babes: the very worst of the 19th Century! In other news, I have spent a considerable amount of time tidying and recoding lots of pages today (too many to list here). Jordan Young has spotted Rolfe Sedan hiding away in Topper Takes A Trip. In examining this I myself discovered Ellinor Vanderveer in the same scene! I have now added these credits (and screenshots) to the relevant pages. Also, this bumps Sedan's number of Roach films up to 27, and Vanderveer's up to 30, which means they both climb the ladder in the Top 200 list.
MAR 17: Added Tommy Atkins to the site, though his identity is subject to dispute. Updated the page for Stepin Fetchit.
MAR 16: Added Alan Dong to the site.
MAR 15: Added Merrill Strong, James McNamara and Yvonne Lohn to the site.
MAR 14: Viewed and reviewed Our Gang's Official Officers (1925). I identified Tony Campanaro in the film, which makes it his earliest appearance in a Hal Roach film, and also, it places him on 10 film credits and therefore into the Top 200 list. Well, sort of... (#205)
MAR 11: Added Roman Bohnen, Leigh Whipper, Bob Steele and Burgess Meredith to the site.
MAR 10: Viewed and reviewed Our Gang's MGM short, Joy Scouts (1939).
MAR 09: Added Norman Budd, Joe Whitehead* and Tommy Tucker to the site. *The dates are either wrong or he is wrongly billed in the film. Also, I have split the A-Z page into two sections; one for actors and one for films. Both pages can now be accessed from any page by clicking the icons at the top of the page. I have also eaten a dozen profiteroles today but that is kind of irrelevant!
MAR 07: Added Murray Alper, Edward Hearn, Robert Ferrero, Tom Hanlon, Thomas Menzies, Billy Gray, Billy Andrews and George McDonald to the site.
MAR 06: Added Mary Astor, Miki Morita, Polly Ann Young and Dorothy Dugan to the site.
MAR 05: Added a DVD comparisons montage for Early To Bed. Wow, I haven't done one of those for months!
Added Yolande Donlan and Buddy Messinger to the site.
MAR 04: Added Verree Teasdale and Inez Courtney to the site. Additional information added to the pages for Marie Dressler and Joyce Compton.
MAR 03: Added Alan Mowbray to the site.
MAR 02: Viewed and reviewed Harry Langdon's god-awful The Big Kick (1930). Added Julian Rivero to the site.
MAR 01: I have now published a new page on the site which lists the actors who appeared in 10 or more films for Hal Roach/Hal Roach Studios: Top 200. This feature is now added to this main menu and a permanent link can be found at the bottom of this page. Added Gene Holland to the site.
FEB 27: New actors added to the database: Jimmy Brown and Byron Shores.
FEB 26: Viewed and reviewed Todd & Kelly's I'll Be Suing You (1934).
FEB 25: Added Albert Roccardi to the site.
FEB 24: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's Tell 'Em Nothing (1926).
FEB 23: After two days of designing and coding I have now published my Beauties And The Beast list (my top 20 Most Beautiful Women At The Hal Roach Studios). This feature is now added to this main menu and a permanent link can be found at the bottom of this page.
FEB 22: Added Jocelyn Lee to the site.
FEB 21: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's Life Hesitates At 40 (1936).
FEB 20: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's Fallen Arches (1933).

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: 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.
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).
