  5. I was holding back on the information because it's not a done deal but since a previous poster on the Chase forum mentions it, I may as well post the information. After years of asking and prodding, I was able to persuade my dearest friend at Sony to do a search for the four unavailable Charley Chase Columbia Shorts. The results were long in coming but the end result was successful. His email three years ago was the most wonderful news I could hope for. There are elements for the "missing four" Chase Columbias and there are negs to the previously available 16. The rights are still being cleared but, if all goes smooth, the tentative release is scheduled for April '09. I did mention that it would be worthwile to release the Chase directed and/or written Columbia shorts in addition to the starring twenty but this wasn't met with the same enthusiasm. Another idea is to release the non Stooge Stooge shorts (the solo Shemps, Joes and Curly Joes) but this may be released on the final volume of Stooge shorts which could help sales of the "Stooges Joe" shorts. However, after the tremendous response to our screening of the complete "Modern Love" (yes, it was all there in all its sound glory - the print was so new, it was almost wet) and "The Awful Goof", at Cinecon in Hollywood, the Chase Columbia project is in motion. With commentaries by myself as well as two others, I've been approached about loaning my Chase Columbia paper archive to the project. It's still in the prep stages so stay tuned.

  7. I have to think that the print of Modern Love, which has been culled from various sources will be partially incomplete but considering that it was once lost except for a "Show At Home" silent print, this is a big notice. Again, it shouldn't be thought of as a comedic gem but it's very rare and almost something of a miracle to at least have the chance to see it at all. We had the chance to see the restoration in process and were pleased to see how it has progressed. It will be a thrill to see it as complete as possible later this month. No word yet on the "Hal Roach Theater". TCM is showing the L&H shorts which kind of makes up for the lack of them (and Roach shorts in general). We have to remember that TCM has other priorities. Also, the Roach shorts haven't been best served as "catch as catch can" entries. I know tons of people who didn't know they were being seen at all. We here online have been very fortunate to have this forum and the TCM webpages to check for them.
  8. ATTENTION ALL CHARLEY CHASE FANS. Cinecon 44, one of the oldest classic film festivals in the country will be held August 28th thru September 1st at Grauman's Egyptian Theater on Hollywood Blvd. Among the over forty films presented will be three films featuring comedy pioneer Charley Chase. First up is a meticulously restored version of "Tillie's Punctured Romance", which includes recently found footage that hasn't been seen since its original release in 1914. Charley Chase plays a detective and has a sequence with Charles Chaplin and Mabel Normand in a movie theater. Second is a long lost film and the first sound motion picture Charley Chase appeared in, entitled Modern Love (1929). Released by Universal, this film also features Anita Garvin. Chase and Garvin filmed this during the break at the Hal Roach Studios when the compound was closed in order to wire up for sound pictures. This will be the first time since 1929 that the once lost film will be seen AND in 35mm. Finally, one of the four missing Charley Chase Columbia shorts that hasn't been seen since its original release in 1939 will be shown. The Awful Goof also features Lucille Lund, who played the wife of Boris Karloff in The Black Cat. Screened in 35mm (as are virtually all the films) this is another rare opportunity to see a once thought lost film. Many features, shorts, cartoons and other rare film will be seen including a two reel remake of Laurel and Hardy's classic Way Out West, this time featuring Max Baer and Maxie Rosenbloom, made at Coolumbia Pictures. Go to the Cinecon website for further information. www.cinecon.org and don't miss this chance to see rare Charley Chase and other amazing films. Cinecon is an annual festival and always takes place over Labor Day weekend. The celebrity banquet is a chance to see at least fifty stars from the glory days and is a big highlight of the festival. Don't expect to wait for these to pop up on DVD. Film preservation is not done soley so everything can be put out on video. Some things are done for preservation purposes and can be seen the way they were meant to be seen; on a screen. Come join us as we screen rare classics and a few nobody has seen in decades. Viva Chase!

  12. The Roach outtakes have not survived save for a special reel prepared as a gift to Stan Laurel. Titles, "That's That", this "gag" reel has some interesting footage. As for outtakes and deleted footage, you have a better chance of finding one of the lost Roach films; at least they were once distributed to theaters. Looking at Neighborhood House, if that's the best of what was left to remain from a feature, there's little reason to suspect that what was deleted was much good. Now the footage taken out of Swiss Miss of Stan's gag with the piano would be wonderful to see but again, all the unused film was destroyed, much to Stan's dismay.
  13. Charley Chase June 21st. 6:40AM PDT - "Neighborhood House". This is Chase's final two reeler for Hal Roach. It was filmed as "Bank Night" a feature length comedy. It previewed badly and was cut down to two reels. Sadly, Chase was let go of the studio he worked at nearly fifteen years. Don't miss the chance to see Darla from Our Gang as his daughter and Rosina Lawrence as his wife..
