    Shorts Sets I'd Like to See

    I was just looking at the Traveltalks thread that was started by Musicalnovelty a while back, and it got me thinking: With all the various sets recently released by Warner Archives featuring specific actors like Shemp Howard and Fatty Arbuckle, or series like FitzPatrick Traveltalks, wouldn't it be great if they released similar collections for other artists and/or specific themes/series? I for one would love to see comprehensive Warner/Vitaphone collections for the following: Hal Le Roy Bob Hope Edgar Bergen Ruth Etting Vaudeville (including all the titles from the Big Time Vaudeville series) Van Dine Mysteries Perhaps an early shorts collection with stars when they were young and starting out like: James Stewart Pat O’Brien Spencer Tracy Red Skelton June Allyson The possibilities are endless. And I'm sure I'm forgetting many other worthy stars/series. These collections could be done in various combinations, like maybe putting Hal Le Roy's and June Allyson's shorts in one collection, since they were in a few shorts together, and the collections could be any number of disks each, depending on what WAC would find most appropriate. Now I realize that a number of shorts for those listed above have been released on dvd as part of larger collections or as dvd extras, but not in star-specific collections, and in many cases (for example, Hal Le Roy, Edgar Bergen and Ruth Etting) there are quite a few titles that have never seen the light of day on TCM, much less dvd, and to put all of an artist or series together in one place seems like a natural (as we've seen with Shemp and Fatty). And given the fact that shorts collections have proven to be excellent sellers, I should hope WAC would see the value in assembling more. I'd be curious to know what others think of this idea, and if anyone could come up with other stars/series for consideration.
  2. HI All. I just joined the Message Boards today so excuse my naiveté on posting. I am going crazy trying to remember the name of a film where a certain vaudeville-type song was performed onstage by 2 older gents. They were singing to each other in a fun, cheery & playful duet. All I remember was at the end of each verse they would reply to each other "Thank you, kindly, Mr._____" and "You are welcome, Mr _______." I don't remember the character names so I inserted blanks. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Any help would be much appreciated as I am dying to find out! Thanks!!
  3. I have to admit my silent film knowledge is low. Any help would be appreciated.
