  • You are probably right.....what they COULD do is to at least put out the solo appearances of Shemp, Joe Besser and Joe Derita....who among us wouldn't like to see "Mr. Noisy" or "Slappily Married" on DVD???  That could be a start.

  • They are pretty interesting. I have bootleg copies of the Shemp, Besser and DeRita shorts. The quality isn't good but I'm still glad to have them.

  • That OH BABY short was very amusing, especially when he tells his neighbor (S.Boniface) that he's the father. Had not seen it before.

  • Do you have the Andy Clyde shorts and Glove Slingers shorts with Shemp or just the starring shorts?

  • Though not a Columbia short, it has quite a few familiar Columbia players in it:

    Also a nice little overview of the Columbia shorts:

  • SAPPY BIRTHDAY was great. The scenes with Clyde unknowingly buying a cemetery plot were hilarious. Between this one and the 1953 short PARDON MY WRENCH, I've been awfully impressed by Clyde, who I had virtually no exposure to prior. LODGE NIGHT wasn't quite as good, but hey.

  • I didn't watch SAPPY BIRTHDAY yet, but I plan to soon.

    I know Andy Clyde more from his silent days at Sennett.  He basically would dress up as anything, be it an old man, a hobo, a woman, whatever, and sometimes would play multiple roles in one short.

    Sadly only the first 5 minutes, but better than nothing. Vernon Dent makes a brief appearance towards the end of the clip.

  • I put MR. NOISY (1946), a Shemp Howard solo, into this thread so it'll be easier to find in the future.

  • Nice finds False!  I didn't believe any of the other Musical Novelties existed, so the fact you got one, and the first Columbia short at that, is awesome.  I'll watch it in a bit, and I'm expecting more a curio than a classic, but still, nice work.

  • People talk about the projection screen from COUNTY HOSPITAL, the one in UMPA could well be even worse. See it at the start of part 2.

    But one good thing about UMPA is the catchy tune from WOMAN HATERS can be heard.

    So, I've now finished UMPA - not to spoil much, but the ending will get your attention. Still, the best thing about UMPA is the familiar background music.
