Review: Dr. Pyckle and Mr. Pryde (1925)

Posted by Brandy Dean March 5, 2013 4 Comments 10611 views

While poking around yesterday, I came across Dr. Pyckle and Mr. Pryde, a silent spoof of the perennial Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I’ve long been a fan of Laurel & Hardy movies. While aware that the duo first appeared in silent comedies, I’ve yet to have the privilege of seeing a silent Laurel […]

If you’re like me, and I think you are, you’re crying into your beer right now because you’re not at the Kansas Silent Film Festival. Unless of course you’re at the fest and reading this on your phone right now – in that case, boooooo! But do not fret my pets! I’ve scoured the interwebs and […]

Breaking news: I’ve just been informed it’s Friday. Seriously, this almost slipped past me. Granted I’ve been caught up in trying to find footage of the debate that Mitt Romney “won,” because surely everyone else is talking about a different debate than the one I saw. Whatever else it is, this week’s media spin on […]

Review: Laurel and Hardy Rarities

I’m not a card carrying member of the Sons of the Desert or anything, but I do harbour an abiding fondness for Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. My fondness goes beyond admiring their work and enjoying their movies. Sure, Laurel and Hardy are always funny, always clever, always enjoyable – but there’s something else, something […]

  Well now, it’s been a busy week at PCF headquarters. We’re still trying to work out the kinks of the new site and the new email system and the new… well everything. And all the while, planning for an outrageous silent film weekend with two screenings on the same day! That’s a lot of […]

Watch 3 Laurel and Hardy Silent Movies

It’s Saturday, it’s kind of yuck outside, and Pretty Clever Film Gal has a splitting headache. What to do, what to do? I think 3 Laurel and Hardy silents plus some hair of the dog should do the trick. I’m pretty certain that these are all Hal Roach productions from 1928 or 1929, but I […]

Happy Birthday Oliver Hardy

  Today is Oliver Hardy’s 120th birthday. Ollie was good for lots of laughs so I suggest you celebrate by watching a Laurel & Hardy flick or two (or three). I highly recommend The Music Box, Swiss Miss, and Flying Deuces. But if you’re stuck in the office ’til 5pm, put on your headphones and […]
