You're in for a real treat with that second Charley Chase set (even better than the first). Let us know what you think of it.
Oh, you bet I will! I just recently got the first volume along with Buster Keaton's Columbia shorts. I've been through both twice, already, and really got a kick out of both! Lot's of new-to-me stuff.
And, at least in my own brain (which should be on a meat counter!), I've solved the mystery of who the voice of Birdie the horse is: Elsie Ames!** After just hearing her speak on the first Keaton disc, I thought immediately of that Hoofs and Goofs picture. Sorry, experts! You can't convince me that was Harriet Tarler doing the voice acting. Her voice is too flat, she has a grating lisp, and her readings are wooden: "Lithen, everybody! Leth all go back to our houth and thelebrathe thith wonderful weunion!" Right. Great to look at though!
An' if it ain't Ms. Ames, it's somebody else who sounds like her. Please don't try to convince me otherwise. My ears know better!
** Before I get ripped a new one for this, let me state that this is not presented as fact, but opinion. After looking this over, casual conversation-style sarcasm or otherwise snarkyness is not always readily apparent.
