Posted by Brandy Dean May 15, 2013 1 Comment 6157 views

 Miss Fatty’s Seaside Lovers was released on May 15, 1915 but you can watch it right now. Miss Fatty’s Seaside Lovers features a lot of Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle and a little bit of Harold Lloyd. I give it four stars for that fact alone and one more for Fatty in drag. [youtube][/youtube]   Direction: Roscoe […]

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 […]

Happy new year to all! I know you’re feeling a little sluggish today and I just read that NetFlix is suffering outages! What’s a movie fan to do? Well, you can watch Victor Victor Sjöström’s The Outlaw and His Wife (1918). You may also know the film as Berg-Ejvind och hans hustru, if that’s how you roll. […]

Raggedy Rose is a cute little silent comedy from 1926 starring Mabel Normand. Rose works for a cheap-skate junk dealer and dreams of romance with a wealthy bachelor. I say: who doesn’t, sister? There’s not a lot that’s truly special about Raggedy Rose. Except that Mabel is always charming. And except that it was co-written […]

Charlie Chaplin’s Shoulder Arms was released on October 20, 1917. Charlie is an infantryman with big dreams of being a hero behind enemy lines. This is wackiness in a trench, and it’s very, very funny. Enjoy!

Today is the release date of Buster Keaton’s The Navigator, except in 1924. It’s not opening down at the local cineplex or anything (a shame, if you ask me). I’m going to go out on a limb and guess if you’re reading this, you don’t need much background on Keaton or The Navigator, so I’ll […]

Watch: A Woman of Paris (1923)

CharlieChaplin’s A Woman of Paris debuted on October 1, 1923. The movie is atypical Chaplin – it’s a drama and though it was written, directed, produced and scored by The Tramp, Charlie Chaplin was not the star of the film. He does appear briefly in an uncredited role as a porter, but audiences expected something […]
