Warner Bros. Silent Comedy Compilations

Recommended Posts

Beginning in 1939, Warner Bros. produced several two-reelers in their Vitaphone Broadway Brevities series using Mack Sennett footage with narrations (Knox Manning, others) and musical scores by William Lava. The first, I believe, was A SMALL TOWN IDOL. Other titles were HAPPY FACES, WEDDING YELLS, PIE IN THE EYE, JUST FOR FUN, A LAUGH A DAY, HAPPY TIMES AND JOLLY MOMENTS, LOVE'S INTRIGUE,  GOOD OLD CORN,  HERE WE GO AGAIN, and ONCE OVER LIGHTLY. I have 16mm prints of the last four. A SMALL TOWN IDOL was released on a laser disc. And I think HAPPY TIMES AND JOLLY MOMENTS has been shown on TCM. Have the other shorts also appeared on TCM or had release on DVD? The rarest seems to be HERE WE GO AGAIN, possibly because of title confusion with the RKO feature of the same name.
