Ok so my 6 year old son loves Disney, Star Wars, Avengers, Harry Potter and now Buster Keaton. Trying to get him on the classics. Just got us this set and we are loving it.

There's a touch of funny Danny Kaye-like physicality in George O'Brien's caveman performance in this silent Howard Hawks comedy. O'Brien was one versatile actor. See his FIG LEAVES at .

Ben Model delivers an eclectic sampling of work, from a distinctive, forgotten figure, from a period when so little survives that the mere preservation of such work should itself be commended. My review of The Marcel Perez Collection: Vol. 2.

Only I would use a Muybridge reference to describe the red carpet walk.

Remember when kids' shows had a live host? This special web-only children's series is raising money to make new 3-D printed puppets for its 3rd season. I did music for season 2.

Here’s ‘In The Temples of Tee-Hee’ article on the status & salaries of gag-men, “court-jesters to comedy-canners, who put the Lloyd in celluloid,” including Marcel Perez who “pares down Jimmy Aubrey’s roll regularly for $400.” Screenland January 1924
