Interesting to see Lloyd out of character. He was plugging a release of The Freshman (1925) with a music score. I wonder if if was recorded or live music....

What fun to watch this footage . The director and camera operators took great care- in part, by cutting and camera angles- in hiding Lloyd’s hand injury... up until Lloyd’s exit, which required hand shaking with the show’s regulars. As may have been commented upon elsewhere, it was odd how slight Lloyd appeared standing beside the panelists. Odder still is the fact that- though Lloyd worked at Keystone- it was, I think, only panelist Steve Allen who ever appeared in a film with Sennett.
Has anyone ever researched what other Lloyd film and national/local TV footage, or audio recordings, exist from the mid-century, when he was traveling for the Shriners and promoting his re-releases?
