  1. Gagman, once again you have broadened my horizons. I was not aware of either the 1970 documentary or the Seven Chances film by Keaton. Perhaps, I should mention that while I am indeed a film-buff and a fairly knowledgeable one at that, I have only recently started to seriously explore the silent film era. My prior viewings have been mostly by chance in the past, although I had seen most of Chaplin's feature films previously. Still, TCM's recent month-long tribute to Chaplin reminded me how much more there is to see. That is what prompted my "Buster Keatron deserves a tribute" email and what ma
  2. While many of Keaton film lovers might welcome a show on AMC or even A&E, I am not really one of them. I am spoiled by and almost insistent upon watching films without any interruptions/commercials etc. The same goes for film documentaries. If you want to get a better idea of how I feel about commercial TV, imagine how most/all folks would react if there was a commercial interruption every 12 to 15 minutes while you are at the local cinema watching a favorite old time movie in a revival show!!! 'nuf said!
  3. I doubt it AND I know not of whom you speak. Why do you ask? I just started reading/contributing to these message boards yesterday. Have you any comparable "quality" trivia, i.e. very, very brief appearances by reasonably well known actors in particularly notable films?
  4. Great news about Steamboat Bill, Jr. - thanks for the "heads-up." By the way is the Keaton in "HarlowKeatonGirl" a homage to Buster or Diane or both or ...? In any regard, I like the moniker. If the "Harlow" is a tribute to Ms. Jean H., what is/are your favorite films of hers - FullMW aka Ron
  5. Hi Gagman - seems you and I are all over the message-board-forum lot these days. Yes, I hear you clearly regarding the talents & accomplishments of Harold Lloyd. You have perked my interest in watching the TCM films of Lloyd next Tuesday. The one film (short?) of Lloyd's that I am most familar with is Safety Last with him dangling from a rather large clock and he had already lost 2 fingers on his right hand a couple of years before! Have you seen Lloyd's own re-release of his films in 2 separate compilations titled "Harold Lloyd's World of Comedy" and "The Funny Side of Life" - if so, wha
  6. Thanks Keith! I hope our bandwagon will be filled to overflowing!!! Yes, yes Steamboat Bill, Jr. and let's not forget The Saphead or The Three Ages - all feature length films as I recall. Then, there are at least 3 short films GEMS that Keaton made - namely, One Week, The Playhouse & Cops. What a treat everyone will be in for -IF AND ONLY IF TCM is listening, taking good notes and then reacting accordinly. Not that I want to criticize TCM in any way - I firmly believe they are the best channel on the entire TV network system WORLDWIDE if I may be so bold - AND all I am suggesting is a wa
  7. ClassicsFan, thank you for recognizing what I did. And, Gagman, I thank you for your ardent support of the films of the great silent comedians. While I am not that familar with the films of Harold Lloyd or Harry Langdon for that matter, i'd almost bet that you can recite the "dialog cards" for each of their films - now that's a true film-lover! BRAVO! By the way, if you haven't already read it (I'd bet that you have) there is an excellent lengthy essay by James Agee , written in the late 1940's, about the 4 great silent film comedians, i.e Chaplin, Langdon, Lloyd & Keaton - its a great tr
  8. Gagman, thank you for both the quantity and quality of your info. on Buster Keaton and Harold Lloyd. I am only several months into seeing TCM on my cable system so I wasn't aware of prior tributes to Buster Keaton. However, based on your comments, I am not sure that TCM is even able to do anything similar to the scale of their programming for their month-long tribute to Chaplin. The 4 Keaton films I mentioned are tops - while The General seems to be Keaton's most watched/discussed/highly praised feature film, Sherlock, Jr. still thrills me whenever I see it. The creative force behind that film
  9. First off, I want to congratulate TCM for its comprehensive month-long tribute to Charlie Chaplin. The combination of shorts, feature films (virtually every Chaplin full-length feature) and comprehensive documentaies on practically every one of Chaplin's feature films made for a truly memorable month - BRAVO TCM! It is programs like this that make TCM the peerless TV channel for film viewing. Now that Chaplin has had his month-long tribute, doesn't his comedic genius rival, namely Buster Keaton, deserve similar treatment? There are many cinefiles who believe that Keaton was the superior filmm
