Okay, so I was wondering if anybody could identify a film (20 minutes, maybe half an hour in length) that I saw on TCM a few years ago. It's a black and white talkie, probably from the '20s or '30s, about dogs fighting World War One. And to be clear, I'm not talking about dogs fighting alongside humans. I'm talking about anthropomorphized dogs fighting as though they were humans, doing all the things that humans did. They walk on their hind legs through some kind of proto-stop motion, and are dubbed with human voices. It is one of the most incredible movies I've ever seen, and for the life of me I can't remember the title or find any recordings of it online.
Laura Oakley was a silent film actress at Universal, and also police chief of Universal City. Her most well-known work was the short mystery series The Black Box, but she ultimately did more than 50 films with Universal. Has anyone seen any of her work? Supposedly she was great with comedy.
