Very impressive research, Jlewis! I've also been researching, listing and logging shorts for many years and have numerous sheets, folders, lists, charts, etc. and it's nice to see them all in the order you have been listing them.

I was especially interested to see your Musical Novelties listing, as I have done especially extensive research over many years on this particular series and have learned and acquired a large amount of material on the eight shorts in the series. I thought I would offer a few corrections and clarifications in the interests of accuracy:

You should have the short WOMAN HATERS included in the list (even though it is also listed as a Three Stooges short - it is actually technically a Musical Novelty short, not a "Three Stooges" short).

SCHOOL FOR ROMANCE was not filmed first. It was filmed third and released third. The first two however were filmed and released in reverse order: UMPA was filmed first but released second, while ROAMIN' THRU THE ROSES was filmed second but released first. I figure that was because UMPA is so bizarre that they realized they would probably scare audiences away from the series if they released that one first, so held it back and released the more traditional romance ROAMIN' THRU THE ROSES first.

You have Conrad, Gottler & Mitchell as Directors of UMPA - they were the writers, not directors. That short, as were all eight in the series was directed by Archie Gottler. (I uncovered an uncredited co-director for one of the shorts, SCHOOL FOR ROMANCE, but officially Gottler was the director of all the Musical Novelty shorts).

One last thing - and perhaps most important: WHEN DO WE EAT was NOT a Musical Novelty short. NOT part of this series! I know where this often perpetuated misconception came from, but it is a mistake. That short was just a regular "All Star" or "Broadway Comedy" (as Columbia called it) short. 

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Like RKO, Pathé, Fox & Education, this list is done by SERIES... unlike my lists for Universal, MGM, Warner and Paramount that are done ALPHABETICAL.

 

Columbia Pictures is one of the better documented studios in terms of its short subjects. Granted, once you pass the realm of the two reel comedy short featuring The Three Stooges, there isn't a whole lot being discussed. Yet progress is being made... and there has been a nifty website dedicated to Columbia's shorties for a while (and getting updated periodically) and this is something we do not have with the other studios. You can see it here: http://columbiashortsdept.weebly.com/ The listings below are NOT to be taken as any kind of improvement or replacement for that great site. You will find no pictures HERE and I only give the most BASIC credit information.

 

Columbia is, of course, most famous for its comedies, but it also made many nifty documentaries, travelogues, sports reels, jazz shorts and... of course, multi-chapter serials (as late as 1955!) and animated cartoons that I am not including here (since I am sticking strictly to the “live-action” non-serial material). Nonetheless I will give a nod to Columbia's toons...

 

  1. Charles Mintz (married to Margaret Winkler, who handled Walt Disney's cartoons of the twenties and famous for getting into a three-way battle with him regarding Oswald the Lucky Rabbit that also involved Universal) headed a Krazy Kat cartoon series that Columbia began distributing in 1929, followed by Scrappy, “Color Rhapsodies” and... after Mintz's passing in 1940 and more changes in management... the Fox & the Crow. The company, known as Screen Gems during its second decade, closed shop in early 1947 with enough 6 to 8 minute shorts “on the shelf” for Columbia to release on a reduced scale during the next two seasons.

  2. Walt Disney distributed his Mickey Mouse and “Silly Symphonies” tentatively in 1929 (The Skeleton Dance was booked in some Columbia “block booking” programs) before the studio became his official distributor at the start of 1930. Disney (who apparently wasn't fond of Harry Cohn) left and joined United Artists in the summer of 1932 just before he started releasing his “Silly Symphonies” in Technicolor. (In 1934, Mintz-Screen Gems began their “Rhapsodies” in a two color system before Disney's monopoly on the three color system was lifted.)

  3. UPA... United Productions of America... revolutionized American animation in the forties with a more modern “anything goes” style of graphics that contrasted from the Disney “chocolate box illustration” style (as critic and historian Leslie Halliwell humorously called it). Columbia started distributing their “Jolly Frolics” with a revamped Fox & Crow in 1948, then scored big with Mister Magoo and Gerald McBoing Boing. UPA later branched into television production and was always making commercials and industrial films early on, but Columbia handled their theaters-only contract through the release of the feature 1001 Arabian Nights in 1959.

  4. When UPA didn't renew their Columbia theatrical contract in order to focus on features and TV, William Hanna and Joe Barbara decided to get “back into” the theatrical business after two years of TV work (and still continuing their empire created there) with a series of Loopy De Loop. 48 titles were released from 1959 through 1965.

  5. The National Film Board of Canada distributed a couple of their 'toons through Columbia in the late sixties... and there were the occasional independent production also picked up that decade. One title of importance was Sam Weiss' Little Boy Bad (1964)

 

Columbia took great pride in its short subjects, which often boasted better production values than the even higher-up-on-the-totem-pole studios which forked over the big bucks on their features. Although few Columbia feature films were in color prior to the forties, their shorties were dabbling with the process in the “Color Sensations” as early as 1929. More important... and this accounts for the company's enduring reputation... was its commitment to the 2-reel comedy long after Mack Sennett and Hal Roach stopped making them in the thirties. Columbia kept the Three Stooges employed through as late as 1958, even if the later titles economized with a higher ratio of “lifted” material from earlier ones. Other studios like RKO (with Edgar Kennedy and Leon Errol) and Warner Brothers (with the decade and a half run of “Joe McDoakes” one-reelers) may have (arguably) boasted a more consistent high standard of quality, BUT they were never as prolific as Columbia... and Columbia certainly was capable of knocking 'em out of the park with all of their creative personnel. In the travelogue and documentary arena, there were still “extras” released with the features as late as the seventies with one covering Norman Rockwell earning a shortie Oscar in a decade when the major studios were seldom nominated for anything not feature length. One reason the studio maintained plenty of shorts for possible theatrical release as late as it did was due to its involvement in the 16mm educational market with the Learning Corporation of America, which I also included here (just their Columbia-backed shorts).

 

Again...

 

Key references used are the same as with the other lists: BoxOffice, Film Daily and Motion Picture Herald Magazine back issues (latter two found on the Internet Archive), the IMDb.com site, Motion Pictures 1912-1939 (1951), Motion Pictures 1940-1949 (1953), Motion Pictures 1950-1959 (1960) and Motion Pictures 1960-1969 (1971). Then there’s Leonard Maltin’s The Great Movie Shorts (a.k.a. Selected Short Subjects, Crown, 1972), The First Hollywood Sound Shorts, 1926-1931 by Edwin M. Bradley (McFarland) and other books worth searching out such as Ted Okuda's The Columbia Comedy Shorts (McFarland), first published in 1986 at a time when The Three Stooges were dominating the wonderful world of VHS as they were on television.

 

************

 

The way these are structured are as follows...

 

-Title first

-Producers, directors and only the most important credits for space reasons are listed in (). If a series was consistent with its credits, I just list them once up top.

-“bw” obviously means black and white, although it could have been colorized for home video (i.e. Three Stooges). Also the approximate... very approximate... running time in minutes or “m”. A 1 reel film ranges from 6 to 112 minutes (and I am not certain if you see this listed) and 2 reels run under 24 minutes.

-Release date or copyright date ©, which is close enough... and occasionally both if I happened to be in the mood. If I have a filming date that is significantly earlier than release time, I have added that ()

-If a plot is available, along with supporting cast members performing, I have included it after the date in italics.

Learning Corporation of America

 

William Deneen launched this 16mm educational film company with Columbia's backing in late 1967, with the first films going into production the following spring and summer for 1969 release. Deneen had previously supervised many of Encyclopædia Britannica's travelogues and served as production head for several years, having plenty of experience in cinematic education. The company prospered in the seventies as a near-rival to EB and other companies like Coronet Instructional. They also made many Saturday and afternoon TV specials for children, which were simultaneously released in 16mm form to the school market.

 

Unfortunately Columbia couldn't sustain the company for ever and, in 1974 (a particularly bad year for the studio's fortunes), sold it to W.F. Hall Printing in Chicago, which... in turn... got bought out by Mobil Oil. Deneen's own Highgate Pictures, that produced many of its most prestigious productions (often shown on TV simultaneously with the classroom) took control after a difficult buy-out in 1984. Three years later, Deneen sold the company to New World Pictures in a move, as he told Jeff Alexander in Academic Films for the Classroom, he “has been sorry for ever since”. The company drastically curtailed production in the early nineties.

 

The following list showcases the live-action short films running under 45 minutes, not features, and does not include films that “LCA” only distributed.

Screen Snapshots (Hollywood documentaries)

This was Columbia's longest running series, beginning before the creation of the studio itself. In recent years, more information has been acquired on the stars covered in the silent shorts, but I am going to allow others to be “completists” here and just list the titles (all by series numbers) here for space reasons. I will detail as many of the sound films as possible.
