  1. Just dropping a little reminder that the Film Festival begins in 6 days!! I think this year is going to be our best and most successful festival yet! To stay current with everything that's going on there, we will be tweeting "live" and you may follow our Twitter feed at http://twitter.com/kssilentfilm. ? Larry
  2. That's quite interesting that Paramount will be having their own version for WINGS. I may try to inquire a little more about that when I speak with David Shepard in a couple weeks. Don't forget that we'll be airing WINGS at our 15th annual Kansas Silent Film Festival, two weeks from today! You can stay current with everything Festival-related by following us on [Twitter|http://twitter.com/kssilentfilm]. I hope to see many of you there!
  3. Film preservationist David Shepard will discuss the DVD project ?Chaplin at Keystone,? at Friday, February 25, 2011 at the Marvin Auditorium of the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library, located at 1510 SW 10th in Topeka at 2:00pm; this event is free to the public. David Shepard will show clips from the films and discuss the historical significance and the restoration process of the earliest work by Charles Chaplin. He is credited with restoring more than 150 early cinema classic films for contemporary technology; he taught cinema at the University of California at Los Angeles, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Iowa and California State University; and he has also served as director of the Louis B Mayer Film and Television Study Center at the University of Southern California.
  4. Yes, it will be a very great year indeed! I wish to express my apologies for my negligence in crediting Mont-Alto Motion Picture Orchestra for their magnificent scoring of *SEVENTH HEAVEN*. By no means did I intend to leave anyone out; I simply rattled off a few films from the top of my head when I initially made the posting. Rodney, if you're reading this, my sincere apologies to you. Jeffrey, I hope I will one day see you at the festival. This year sounds like the perfect opportunity to meet you. Larry
  5. As you probably know, it's getting close to that time again ? time for the 15th Annual Kansas Silent Film Festival! There are a couple of special treats in store for this coming February! First off, this is a special year as the KSFF is honoring The Academy Awards?, by showing and highlighting films from 1927-1928, the year that the first awards were presented. These films include SPEEDY; THE CIRCUS; THE LAST COMMAND; and the ever-popular WINGS will once again be seen at the festival during the special Sunday matinee. This will be the first year ever that the Kansas Silent Film Festival will be extended into Sunday! Secondly, Annette D?Agostino Lloyd will be the special guest speaker. Annette is an author and historian on the great comedian, Harold Lloyd; she also maintains her own website at http://www.haroldlloyd.us/. Rumor has it that David Shepard, noted film preservationist, will once again make an appearance at this year's festival, as will Paul Gierucki, the American cinema historian who bought the can of old film marked "Keystone" at an antiques sale in Michigan and discovered it to be a lost Chaplin film, A THIEF CATCHER (1914). Come to the KSFF Fri, Sat, & Sun (Feb 25,26,& 27 2011) at Washburn University's White Concert Hall for the 15th Annual KSFF. It's open to the public and, best of all, it's FREE!!!! For more information, and a complete schedule, check the KSFF out on the web at http://www.kssilentfilmfest.org/. You can also follow @kssilentfilm on Twitter at http://twitter.com/kssilentfilm and they will be tweeting "live" during the event.

  8. Lately I've been feeling "dead". During the summer, I get so pre-occupied with other things, I hardly have the opportunity to get to other message boards except my own ? and I barely even have time for that one! HAHA I'll have to look forward to seeing KIKI! Visit me at [Larry's 66 Diner|http://www.larrys66diner.com/]

  10. Have you any ideas what films she played in? I cannot say that I am familiar with the name. I too, have been looking for another child actress from the decade before her, named Gladys Egan; I haven't had much luck finding information about her either, for the past few years.

  11. Jeffrey, I was extremely blown away by this movie! It had me "hooked" from the time of the opening credits!!! My only curiosity was that Robert Osborne hinted in his monologue about part of the film (near the end?) being in sound. I kept waiting and waiting and waiting for the sound portion, but it never came. To be perfectly honest with you, however, I was not looking forward to it though, because if I wanted to watch a sound film, I would have watched a sound film! I don't watch silents to hear sound, so I wasn't exactly disappointed! Larry http://www.larrys66diner.com/
  12. A very great film, starring Anna Baxter, Ann Sothern, Raymond Burr, and George Reeves. Anne Baxter plays a woman who has been jilted in love and falls in love with a playboy who winds up dead the next morning. Since she had been on a blind date with him the night before and had too much to drink, she believes she had killed him, in a drunken stupor. But did she? It's left up to super sleuthing by Richard Conte, the local newspaper man to help decide her fate! Also contains a very wonderful Special Guest appearance by Nat King Cole! http://www.larrys66diner.com/
  13. Directed by and starring the fabulous Orson Welles! This film also stars Edward G Robinson, Loretta Young, and Philip Merivale. Welles plays a professor, who marries the daughter of a judge (Young) and attempts to hide his past as a fearless Nazi leader. Robinson has been hot on his trail to bring him to justice for war crimes. This is an awesome 95-minute film worth seeing! http://www.larrys66diner.com/
  14. Well, I finally watched this film on the DVR last night! (I had recorded it and just had the opportunity last night to sit down and watch it.) All I can say about the film is "Oh, my God!" This is one hell of a powerful movie! I kind of put this in the same category as *Sparrows*, due to its nature and theme. It explored current topics which are still current in today's world, and I also think it was somewhat graphic for its time. Nonetheless, Lina Basquette and Tom Keene packed great performances! I liked Marie Prevost's part in the film too, and as for Noah Beery ... GEEZ!!! His role reminded me of the role Gustav Von Seyffertitz played in *Sparrows* as the evil Mr. Grimes! Great job, Mr. DeMille! http://www.larrys66diner.com/
  15. To my knowledge, TCM only airs the version with the Martinez score. And, yes, this is a fantastic little film with Jackie Coogan and Max Davidson. Although, Coogan wasn't as cute as he was in The Kid, he still pulled off another comedic/tear-jerking performance! Robert Edeson has a great part in this movie, as well! You won't regret watching this! http://www.larrys66diner.com/
