This is the most latest new finding of an approximately 150 ft Nitrate roll from France with a German Intertitle which was located in Austria. Really to say, there's no Rene Lantini as seemingly resembles to his face appearance dispute it is a comedy short film. No head and ending footage but some nice scan of the film listed below for anyone to ID it. :)

It looks like it was a fun film. Shades of the Three Stooges in your last photo...

That's the first thing I thought. It's uncanny how much the middle guy looks just like Moe!

The Moe guy looks like Harry Fox, but that's pretty unlikely as he only made a few silents.

Well, I'd badly wants Rene Lantini to be here but no. Too pity as I simply cannot wait for his next appearance after I uploaded LES SUICIDES PAR PERSUASION, as my 'LUCK' chance will be taken in effect more than sooner . . . :cry:
