  1. > 8/23 5:43am/2:43a - King of the Duplicators > 1968-12m-doc (make up artist William Tuttle) > > Oooh, this is an interesting one. Yes, especially in light of his passing away last month at age 95. It's a good time for TCM to repeat this short. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/08/02/AR2007080202292.html
  2. Yes, 1945's _People on Paper_ short in _The Passing Parade_ series does indeed include Chet Gould and Tracy. For comic strip fans, it's a treasured short subject. http://imdb.com/title/tt0136457/usercomments'>http://imdb.com/title/tt0136457/usercomments'>http://imdb.com/title/tt0136457/usercomments'>http://imdb.com/title/tt0136457/usercomments and http://imdb.com/title/tt0136457/

  4. Civil War and history buffs - as well as collectors of director Jacques Tourneur's early work - will enjoy the one reel M-G-M short on whether or not the "man in the barn" was really John Wilkes Booth or not. It's one of Carey Wilson's historical mystery shorts. Good reaction to it at this IMDB link which connects it to the upcoming film, _Manhunt_. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0277127/#comment It airs early in the morning at: 11/15 12:02am EST /9:02p- The Man In the Barn 1937-11m-HM
  5. I enjoy that short, too. It's good news for collectors that this short, _Annie was a Wonder_, is one of the "extras" on the DVD of Astaire & Rogers' _Barkleys of Broadway_ http://www.amazon.com/Barkleys-Broadway-Fred-Astaire/dp/B0009NSCPS

  8. Regarding _Neighborhood House_, which airs on TCM early on Saturday, 10/7: Chase biographer Brian Anthony [in Scarecrow Press' _Smile When the Raindrops Fall: The Story of Charley Chase_ (1998), well worth interlibrary loaning as well as purchasing for your collection] writes: "The film was extensively previewed during April, 1936, and Roach ordered some cuts. The final version came in at 55 minutes, and trade reviews were good to excellent. Only _Variety_ panned the film.... ... Distributors, many of whose theaters had their own bank nights, did not find the impl
  9. Thanks, MGMWBRKO! Please, never ever leave TCM. You have a devoted following here. Among the new treasures coming up for Chase fans, set your recorders for: the very last Charley Chase short for Roach, _Neighborhood House_. 10/7, 7:34am EST - "Neighborhood House" If you've not yet visited Yair Solan's Charley Chase site, make a fast move over there and read more about Charley, including notes on the evolution of _Neighborhood House_ from feature film back to short subject. http://www.geocities.com/ysolan82/chase.html and http://www.geocities.com/ysolan82/arch

  13. In addition to the online resources that we gravitate toward these days, for background and more information on the short subjects being aired on TCM, let's consider an old-fashioned book, too. It's there you will find the real gold. Check out Leonard Maltin's _Selected Short Subjects: From Spanky to the Three Stooges_ (De Capo Press, 1983) from your library, interlibrary loan a copy, or even better, buy a copy (since I bet you'll use it over and over) from one of many online booksellers. Type in this ISBN: 030680204X You will find histories and
  14. I did, too, and really enjoyed it! THANKS, TCM, for continuing to offer special moments like this!!!
  15. TCM Web Staff, Can you help us Mitchum fans with some information on the start times of TCM's showings of Bruno Collet's French short, Calypso is Like So (2003, 7-8 minutes), the stop-motion animated tribute to Mitchum? I know it's being aired some time during the Mitchum festival, but... when? How often? Thanks! forgetitjake
