I can't wait to see them! I thought about buying a dvd with some of his silent Roach comedies. But, this set I purchased has a short he directed that features Smith and Dale, and I'm looking forward to seeing them in action.

His silent comedies are SO good ... "Limousine Love" and "Mighty Lak a Moose" come to mind, but there are others that are great, and the Roach talkies, too. More folks should be watching him, now that his stuff is becoming available. Watch him in his Roach shorts with Thelma Todd---they had a thing going, and you can see there's a connection there. (Also carefully watch Thelma and Chico Marx in "Horse Feathers" while he's doing his piano solo ... they look REALLY chummy!)

Poor Thelma Todd.

I love to write fiction (no telling if any of it will ever be published). I have a detective character set in the 30s who gets involved in the murder case of a young actress who has more than a few things in common with Todd (names are changed, and some facts are changed to suit the story). I've always liked Todd and hold sort of a soft spot for her.

Do you hold to the suicide theory?

This isn't vintage film, but it is the best forum for it, I suppose. Yesterday I came across some OTR that I was not familiar with. I heard an episode of the Phil Harris-Alice Faye show, and it was VERY funny! It makes me want to find more episodes and chekc them out. Seem to have more of an edge to it than some comedy from that era.

No. I understand from things that I've read that she was in the midst of her Christmas shopping and had already mailed Christmas cards, and was talking about other plans. Friends are quoted as saying she was upbeat and optimistic about her career. I'd lean more toward accident or murder. After all this time, we'll never know.

Fyi

Programming Note: Thursday night on TCM there is a whole batch of Harold Lloyd comedies coming on! Some I have on DVD, but there's a lot I don't! I'm looking forward to it.

I Googled the key words in your description. I think it's "The Thrill of It All."

I am watching some of the Harold Lloyd shorts on TCM. These prints look amazing! I am not sure how they restored them, but for 96 year old pictures they are pristine.
