  1. heya

    Just wondering if you were still around.
    I know you are just using spare time on looking up that Laurel and Hardy score, I just wish my somewhat pesky female friend would leave me alone about it xD

  2. Just seeing this now, but let me confirm: definitely Thurston Hall.
  3. I haven't seen one yet, so I'm wondering if TCM did one of their memorial clips tribute to Norman Lloyd. He certainly deserves it. (UPDATE) - Yes they did. Just found it on YouTube.
  4. Okay, I know this score very well. I know the titles and composers of every tune. In fact, I have 78 RPM records of all of them after about the two minute point. By the way, the only Paul Whiteman tune used is the one the original poster mentioned. The rest are by other bands. It'll take a little while to double-check my notes on this to make sure I get all the info exact and in the right order, but I'll post again soon with the info.
  5. That is a silent short that came out in 1927 with no soundtrack. Completely silent. There is no real official original soundtrack. So any version we see (and hear) now has had music added. And there are several different copies out there with different music scores added by different people or companies over the years. So, it's hard to answer your question without knowing which copy you're referring to. Is it the one that TCM runs occasionally (last shown on Dec. 7, 2020)?
  6. I guess that's it. We covered them all!
  7. This one is pretty obscure! In the 1930 movie KING OF JAZZ a Paul Whiteman impersonator appears. His rhyming name is Paul Small.
  8. Jack Black is the one I was thinking of, that I mentioned in my original post.
  9. The recent post on "Alliterative Actors" made me think of another listing that could be fun: actors (and actresses) whose first and last names rhyme. To get started, here are a few I thought of right away: Florence Lawrence Harry Carey Fay Wray Frank Bank ("Leave It To Beaver" TV show). I'm thinking of one more, but not wanting to name too many without giving others a chance, I'll wait and see if anyone else names this one. Who can think of some more?
  10. I've always recommended this movie for the Three Stooges fans who claim to not like Joe Besser. It is the only film he made in which he gets killed! It's the Besser movie for those who don't like Besser.
  11. You must not get the Fox Movie Channel. They often get into ruts where they'll run the same movie every morning for a week or two, and they just did that with this movie. It must have been on at least 7 or 8 times in just the last two or three weeks. But you're right about the movie not being shown before the Fox Movie Channel started running it in the last few years. Being a Three Stooges fan I was interested to see it because Joe Besser is in it, and it just never turned up for years until these recent Fox Movie Channel showings.
  12. I agree! I was thinking of pointing that out too. They'd be just right for a Saturday morning...good family entertainment. Same with the Blondie movies (another series of good fun family movies of which they have already run a few, so they must have the rights to run them all).
  13. I'm kind of surprised TCM is programming these movies based on that old book. They could do a night of "bad" movies with many other themes. (Unless that book is being reprinted and they're promoting it, or some reason like that). Most film buff friends I know don't care much for that book anyway. Too many people take it too seriously and truly believe the films in it are bad, when in many cases the authors seem to have just picked one by certain stars (like THE BIG NOISE with Laurel & Hardy) to represent a period in the star's career or some other reason like that. So, the book has do
  14. Is that the complete list? In fact, is there a listing besides just those poster images? I don't have the book handy, but I seem to recall it included a Roy Rogers movie. But I don't see one on the list on that site.
