|LATEST UPDATES IN THE LAST MONTH||
AUG 20: Reviewed the Snub Pollard crap The Mystery Man (1923).
My thanks today are reserved for the likes of Crazy Craig Cuckoo Calman, Jesse and Jim for their continued efforts in helping me with corrections on this site. More donations coming in from regulars which are massively appreciated too. Got tons more stuff to add thanks to Anonymous over at the forum, which I shall peel off at my leisure.|
AUG 19: Added Joseph Belmont to the site as I attempted to review the Snub Pollard film The Mystery Man (1923) but got absolutely fed up after just 4 minutes and abandoned it. I just don't get paid enough to watch crap like that!
AUG 18: ANM's Jim Jarvis has gone to silly lengths in adding a book-load of new information for actress Jane Sherman, which I have now added to her page with the information recently supplied to the site by LampyMeier2007 (probably not his real name!!). James Harper has written to ANM and advised that Doris Oelize died in 2014, so I have also updated her page too! Also added Myrtle Watson and Malcolm St. Clair to the site. Updated the Films A-Z page again, with highlighting the Charley Chase films for Columbia in green. Interestingly (and embarrassingly) several titles were not on the list - but they are now! Not enough? Well, two new people have donated a total of £43 to the site in the last 24 hours as well. Thanks guys, it's massively appreciated. All that and I am adding new titles to the site all the time and will eventually have ALL of Hal Roach's films listed (and not just the ones I physically own). And breathe........
AUG 17: Added John Williamson to the site. Also added some interesting trivia for John Warburton. As well as now adding ALL the Hal Roach films to the site (slowly) I have also updated the Films A-Z page to show the MGM/Our Gang titles more clearly. Little tweaks make for better navigation, I think?
AUG 16: Added Vince Barrows to the site.
AUG 13: Added Clyde Dembeck, Edmund Corthell, Godfrey Craig, Clarence Muse, Bobs Watson, Kenneth Wilson, Alvin Morris, Cullen Morris, Lorraine Long, Charles Millsfield, Bradley 'Buster' Slaven, Paul Toien, Warren Mills, Jack Roach, David Holt and Spencer Quinn to the site.
AUG 12: Added Bobby DeWar, Norman Willis, Art Stephenson, Billy Butts and Arthur Millett to the site.
AUG 11: At the foot of this page I have outlined a brief summary of book credits for all material I have consulted and used within this website on a regular basis. Regular visitors of this website will already know that I am very heavy on crediting all my sources for every little detail added to the site.
Added Tiny Lawrence, Blair Davies, George Stevens Jr., Harry Harvey Jr. and Henry Hanna to the site.
AUG 10: Richard W. Bann has spent hours and hours on my behalf to establish the correct identity of Hayes Robertson. Also added Charles DeBriac and Raymond DeBriac to the site.
AUG 09: Added Clarence Howerton and Patsy Northrup to the site.
AUG 08: Added Leona Levin, Peggy Speth, Phillip Marley Rock, Billy Wolfstone, Eileen Bernstein, Betty Cox and William Bailey to the site.

AUG 01: Added Jackie Salling, Billy Finnegan, Bert LaBaron, Duke Sexton and Murlin Powers to the site.
JUL 31: Added Fern Carter, Billy Lee, Frank LaRue and Isabel La Mal to the site. Will add images later; the purpose at the present time is just to get these people installed on the site and create live pages for them so I can link them into their films. Many (and I do mean MANY) more to be added over the next month.
JUL 22: Viewed and reviewed Our Gang's Family Troubles (1943). Added Elspeth Dudgeon to the site.
JUL 21: Added Sarah Padden, Harry C. Bradley and John Davidson to the site.

JUL 14: Viewed and reviewed the Todd/Kelly film, Three Chumps Ahead (1934). Added Eddie Phillips, Ernie Adams and Frank Moran to the site.
JUL 13: Viewed and reviewed Harold Lloyd's Just Neighbors (1919) - which was released 100 years ago today. I didn't fall asleep during it, so that was a surprise!
JUL 12: Added Eddie Quillan and Churchill Ross to the site. Added the Glenn Tryon films The Hug Bug (1926) and Ukulele Sheiks (1926) to the database with posters and lobby cards. I do not own the films so cannot offer any review or cast screenshots. I will now be adding ALL of the Hal Roach films to the site as opposed to only the ones I have available.
JUL 11: Added George Dunning and Herbert Evans to the site.

I am now making the page available for all to play for free. Scoreboard now included on the page. Thanks to all those who took part. Congratulations to PAUL MCLACHLAN for winning with all 110 correct answers!
JUL 06: Viewed and reviewed Charley Chase's Jeffries, Jr. (1924).
JUL 05: Viewed, reviewed and updated Charley Chase's Isn't Life Terrible? (1925).
JUL 03: Added Maurice Cass, George Rayes, Janet Johnson, Jack Egger, George Guhl to the site.
I have been contacted by a relative of James Finlayson who very kindly offered some additional information (and correct birthdate) for one of his brothers, Robert. I currently have over 50 mails to sift through which need my attenion for the website. I am going to be spending time on these as opposed to doing film reviews for the next week or so. With regards to the L&H 100 screenshots quiz which is still active, I am told some of the players are losing sleep over some of the shots. Good! Haha. All viewers of this site will be able to play the game for free next week when I publish the link. You will then be invited to take part in the next one.... In other news, Dave Glass has sent these two shots: 1 and 2 of me up on the big screen doing a video-recorded introduction to a Mack Sennett segment at Rob Stone's "Mostly Lost" event in Virginia a couple of weeks ago. Apparently the almost-200 strong crowd knew who I was. Weird. Photos courtesy Bill Dragga.
JUL 02: Added Mary Ann Such and James Menzies to the site.
JUL 01: Added a page to showcase the books available from my friend Irv Hyatt.
