Glad to know I'm not the only who likes Admiral Halsey/Uncle Albert.
"Be a gypsy, get around, get around. Get your feet up off the ground, live a little, get around!"

Yep, I like this one too, along with many other of Sir Paul's post Beatles tunes!

I did nevertheless find shemp#1's MTS posting hilarious, though!  There's room for all viewpoints.

CHEERS!  [3stooges]

Being Keaton's last silent short, THE LOVE NEST was actually a pretty good place for him to end at before starting his own features. Joe Roberts is just wonderful as the captain. His reactions whenever his crew members screw up are just wonderful and it does lead to a nice running gag with Keaton and the wreaths, though I do have to wonder why Roberts didn't throw Keaton off after the coffee incident, considering his limited patience with the other crew members. I also really enjoyed the porthole gag. Seeing Keaton's reaction after Roberts hands him the picture is just priceless.

Once again, there is a lot of excitement to this short such as with the whale or when Keaton is sinking the ship. However, the part towards the end with the navy and their target practice feels pretty unnecessary and just kind of drags on a bit. Still, Keaton does give a spirited performance and does show that he could have continued in shorts if he really needed to.

Weekly Episode Discussions / The Love Nest (1923) - Buster Keaton

Watch THE LOVE NEST in the box above and get the Damfino's note here:
http://www.busterkeaton.com/Films/B19_The_Love_Nest.html

Does anybody like the Youtube box I post every week?  This short is a precious way to end the second phase of our journey.  We may or may not include his Educational shorts; that's TBD.

The basic concept is that Keaton is escaping spurned love on a dreamy journey.  His misadventures are hilarious as he has run-in after run-in with Joe Roberts.  Somehow, though, he endears himself to escape the murderous fate or his shipmates.  Even he gets murderous and murdered in Stooge fashion!

Great moments: sealing the envelope with his tears, the shoe polish beard, Buster throwing the wreaths, playing solitaire after killing Roberts to sink the ship, and his post-awakening realizations.

Sorry, but I love this short.

Yeah, things are normal.  Get ready for THE LOVE NEST review; I probably will do it this evening.

Tony, I held onto my GOOF ON THE ROOF VHS for the very reason you mentioned. 

As for the Goodtimes sets, which came out in 1990.

Vol. 1 Loose Loot, Rumpus in the Harem, Scheming Schemers
Vol. 2 Husbands Beware, Musty Musketeers, Wham-Bam-Slam!
Vol. 3 Cuckoo on a Choo Choo, Love at First Bite, Shot in the Frontier
Vol. 4 Baby Sitters Jitters, Don't Throw That Knife, He Cooked His Goose
Vol. 5 Income Tax Sappy, Spooks!, Three Hams on Rye

Above is a link to the VHS videography.
There's even a few "Fake Shemp" shorts in that Goodtimes lot, and interestingly two of them in the volume 1 set, at that!  I imagine that Columbia sub-licensed these (mostly) lesser Shemp Howard featured 3 Stooges shorts to them for peanuts?  However, I suppose that even Goodtimes had no love for poor Joe Besser!

CHEERS!  [3stooges]

      I got rid of them, but I literally owned every VHS tape Sony released.  Three shorts a tape, with one short taking the title of the tape.  It's true, all the Curly's made it and a majority, if not all of the original Shemps appeared. Very few stock footage jobs, though BUBBLE TROUBLE made it.  No Besser shorts but the five Derita Columbia films were also in the series.  Goodtimes also released five volumes of Shemp shorts. Some were originals but mostly stock footage films were in these volumes.  In addition, AMC aired a syndicated package of 130 shorts, so a handful of shorts not released on VHS were included that were were able to record off television.  With all this, there were still some Shemp shorts missing, including originals (it was years before I saw Hugs and Mugs and Slaphappy Sleuths), and since only six of the sixteen Bessers were in the syndicated package, ten of the Bessers were hard to find.  This is what being a Stooge fan was like in the early 2000's.

      Sony then went to DVD, released maybe five or six shorts at a time, and then made the ill fated decision to released colorized versions, which I refused to buy.  Then the eight volumes came out, and the world lived happily ever after.  If you told me fifteen years ago all 190 would be released, in addition to the Stooge solo as well as all the Columbia Buster Keaton and Charley Chase shorts, I would have looked at you like you have two heads.
