If you enjoy that one, try to find the Brownlow-Gill documentaries about Chaplin ("Unknown Chaplin") and Keaton ("Buster Keaton: A Hard Act to Follow"). They're both awesome---and I seldom use that word.

In "The Third Genius," they talk to "Sunshine Sammy" Morrison. Mr. and I both met him briefly at a film convention. He had passed away not long before the show first aired on PBS in the U.S. It was poignant to see him smiling and telling about working with Lloyd at the Hal Roach Studios when he (Sammy) was a little boy. (He was also the nucleus of Our Gang in the early 1920s.)
