  • Nice list, a few of these films I've never seen.  Those two Charley Chase talkie shorts I'm most curious about.

  • Very cool Green Canaries ... thank you for this...

    I wish there were more Stooge connections (Healy, Shemp solo, etc.) but this is still great.

  • A lot of great movies that I have never seen before. Tons of comedians at their prime here. One thing that I'm not sure other members of this board will know about is that on Sunday, TCM is having an online slapstick comedy course that I believe runs for about five or six weeks. You go about at your own pace, and there's probably going to be some talk about the Stooges as HAVE ROCKET, WILL TRAVEL is in the film schedule. I have already enrolled.

  • I've seen Youngson's "Golden Age Of Comedy" a number of times. My favorite part is from a Laurel & Hardy film where everyone is kicking each other, it seems.

    From YOU'RE DARN TOOTIN' (1928).
