How much would that Outlaws Is Coming VHS signed by Adam West go for?
I am not sure how to post pictures in here so I reckon message me if you would like to see them. All my stooge items are still in the box or protected. I need the collection sold ASAP my baby is due any day now and I need some more supplies. I am parting with something I love to provide for something I love more. So until I figure out how to post pictures email for them if you wish. I am asking $3,500 for the whole lot I will accept offers to if reasonable. Shipping will work out between me and the buyer. So this is a list of what you’ll receive.

It has a list of partial items on eBay but whoever buys it will receive everything listed above and some extras not mentioned. Remember I need it sold ASAP and $3,500 or best offer. Message me or email me for pictures. I hope whoever buys it will love this collection as much as I have. I’ve been collecting since I was in 6th grade.
I personally find most of the Besser era Stooge shorts to be an upgrade and a huge breath of fresh air to most of the later Shemp/fake Shemp era Stooge shorts because it was great seeing most of the Besser era shorts with all new footage and them doing something different, I've always liked the Besser shorts more than most of the later Shemp/fake Shemp era shorts.I think that the even the fake Shemp era Stooge shorts are better than the Joe Besser ones. Even in pop culture, it is widely regarded that the Joe Besser short films were a mistake. I will have to agree with the person who said that the space ones are good because at least those ones were being creative. I kind of have to disagree with you on your point that they were doing different things with the Joe Besser shorts because probably a good half of them were just remakes of Curly and Shemp shorts but not as funny. At least with the Shemp recycles, there was a funny guy in the role of the third Stooge. Joe Besser was a fine comedian, but he was just not one that should have been in the role of the third Stooge.
Don't know about a DVD release, unless it's the one Amazon lists as a release from Passport, but the guy who had the idea for this edit posted it on YouTube.Oh my gosh. That is a truly terrible video.
The silent version existed for movie theaters who at the time were not yet equipped to show sound films. As far as I know, that's the only reason a silent version exists. Think I'll watch that version now, should be interesting.Where can you find the silent version of the film?
It all started when I decided to see if I could find any alternate CA Death Index entries for him. So, in addition to "Littlebi[lly] Rhodes," I found another one with the same info for a "Clarence Bliss."Thanks! It would make sense that he would come from Lynn, Massachusetts being that my family and I are all natives to the state. Also, I had absolutely no clue what his real name is. And I'll have to check where the last name "Bliss" falls into my family tree, and find out if "Little" Billy had any siblings or anything like that.
Well, from there, I discovered that Little Billy Rhodes's real name was Clarence Herbert Bliss, and that he was born February 1, 1895 in Lynn, Massachusetts (though his WWII draft registration card claims Newburyport, MA).

That's pretty crazy. You should do one of those ancestor researches to find out.Well, if you get any information about him in the years to come, I'd like to know. I wonder if he worked with any comedians that we talk so much about on these forums! I don't know of any famous actors in the 1910's that worked for Fox Studios, but I'm sure that somebody would know.
Supposedly, my Great Grandfather was a cameraman for Fox Studios in the teens when they were East Coast based. If true, he probably shot one reelers that are now lost. No way of confirming this other than my great grandfather, who died in 1962, claimed it and it's been passed on in my family. They didn't really credit cameraman as much in the teens, so this is a mystery I'll never know.
They're hoping to start production in 2018.
Just declare A Plumbing We Will Go the winner and let's move on.I completely agree. I'm surprised that it has already gotten out.
And we have a tie... since we had a tie, I am going to do this one in the way Metaldams would... choose your two favorites from the lot... any pair will do, and it will count as a singular vote for each of the shorts...HOI POLLOI and AN ACHE IN EVERY STAKE
1 THREE LITTLE BEERS
5 THREE ARABIAN NUTS
8 HOI POLLOI
18 AN ACHE IN EVERY STAKE
Nice! I'll definitely give my two cents.As will I! I hope to be an active contributor in the Keaton discussions as well as other discussions that we may have in the future and kind of expand my knowledge of slapstick comedy to more than just comedy teams and maybe find out some cool solo acts along the way. I've seen a couple films of Keaton's, so out of the all of the silent comedians, I think I've seen more of him but I'm excited to see more of his films!
We'll be doing the ones starring Buster. Whether they'll be in order with his short subject films is TBD.Okay. Good. Because there are a couple of assorted short subjects and feature films where he's only in a tenth of the film, so it seems like it would be a bit odd if we would review those films. However, very much looking forward to the Buster Keaton discussion and I'm glad that you're starting with the Roscoe Arbuckle shorts as this is where his character really started to take shape and started to evolve into the Buster that would become famous in films like The General.
