    That's a strange way to spell the name Arthur! A mistake, perhaps?

    I'd like to see TCM run the 1930 version of GOOD NEWS more often and the 1947 version less often. The 1930 version has been shown only 8 times, and not since 1999 while they've shown the 1947 remake at least 70 times!

    Stormy Weather (1943)

    Mantan Moreland's partner in those comedy routines was Ben Carter. They did the routine in two of the Monogram (not Republic) Charlie Chan movies: "The Scarlet Clue" (1945) and "Dark Alibi" (1946). They also did it in the 1946 RKO Radio Picture "Riverboat Rhythm" and also on stage in Vaudeville tours. Sadly, those two 1946 movies were Ben Carter's last, as he passed away in December of 1946 at only age 35.

    Hal Roach shorts on TCM

    These were scheduled as part of a day of films about crazy doctors or scientists. (And by the way, the synopsis they provide for the Charley Chase short is not accurate).

    Wheeler & Woolsey

    The film exists complete, in fact that audio recording that is on YouTube is from a cassette recording the former owner of the film made for me many years ago, from his 16mm print. He passed away several years ago and the print has found a home with another good friend of mine. I feel very fortunate that both the former and current owners of the film have run it for me a few times, since I know that a lot of W&W fans are frustrated that it is the only one of their films that they can not get to see. In addition to the good condition 16mm print in my friend's collection, reportedly there is also a print at the BFI in London.

    Wheeler & Woolsey

    "So This Is Africa" has been shown on TCM, but not since 1994. They ran it 7 (seven!) times between July and December 1994, but not once since then. "So This Is Africa" on TCM in 1994: July 9 August 22 September 7 October 21 November 8 November 22 December 17 They ran several other rare (at the time) Columbia features during their first year, and although it took a while in some cases, they have finally repeated all of them....but not "So This Is Africa". Come on, TCM, what's the story?

    Did anyone predict the Oscars?

    I predicted I wouldn't watch it. And my prediction came true.

    Wallace Beery film title?

    The still number is actually 553, not 5SS. And the lady is Marjorie Rambeau, not Dorothy Jordan.
