TCM + Hallmark = HAL ROACH


Recommended Posts

When did Turner make a deal with Hallmark? It is most welcome!


In the last week I've been having a great time with the One Reel Wonders showing shorts from the Hal Roach Studios.


TCM has played, to my count, three from The Boyfriends Series and two with Zasu Pitts and Thelma Todd. Also one or two Laurel and Hardy's too!


Anyone else catch these? Hope they keep showing them. They're really great.

I grew up watching Abbott and Costello so I know all their movies pretty well enough. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein and The Time of Their Lives are my two favorites.


The Boyfriends are a series of shorts that starred Mickey Daniels and Mary Kornman, two of the first kids (grown up here) from The Our Gang Comedies. They also starred Grady Sutton. Having never seen any of these shorts before I'm glad to see them at last.


I wish Hallmark would release these on DVD along with the Thelma Todd comedies but if TCM keeps showing them that will be good enough for me.
