  1. I'd like to know what everyone's take is regarding who YOU feel is the "true original" of the silent comedy era. In other words, who was the true master & innovator of the genre. Who's genius reigns supreme? Is it Harold Lloyd? Is it Buster Keaton? Is it Charlie Chaplin? Is it Stan Laurel? Is it Roscoe Arbuckle? Is it Charley Chase? Is it Harry Langdon? Orrrrr Could it be Hal Roach or Max Sennet?

A company that specializes strictly in classic black & white films. They can be either silent or with sound. I believe that both can be used effectively. But when I refer to sound I don't mean it in the obnoxious sense of how sound is used today. But rather,
  3. YES! YES! YES! You can add my vote to that request! Although I must admit that I am a HUGE FAN of Harold Lloyd & Buster Keaton. Man I wish we could go back to creating films like that. Sometimes I feel like creating my own film studio specializing in silent movies (hey anyone interested?). That's how much of a silent film fan I am!
  4. Yes, Chaney is truly the GREAT CHARACTER MASTER of all time as far as I'm concerned. A genius in every sense of the word. And what a tragedy that "BITS OF LIFE" appears to be lost forever. How can people be so careless. What a darn shame! Anyway, yes I have seen just about every LON CHANEY film currently availabe and I do have the LAUGH CLOWN LAUGH film on DVD including SHADOWS (another great classic) on VHS. BITS OF LIFE has been at the top of my "most wanted" Chaney list for years as I am also a huge fan of Anna May Wong. Hopefully a copy of this film will be found one day.
  5. Hi, I have a movie question regarding the great master Lon Chaney. Does anyone know if the film titled "BITS OF LIFE" has ever been released on video or dvd? If not, has TCM ever played it? I have never seen this film (except for a few movie stills) and I am dying to see it! Any info would be most appreciated. Thank you!
