Revisiting the search for dad's hard-to-find titles

PostSun Feb 19, 2017 12:26 pm

Hello again everyone!!

"Nobody" bit player Eddie Hall's kid Parry here...again

I believe I haven't posted since August 2016.

I am placing my want list here once again for dad Eddie Hall. These are the titles that have been tough to find. I have been looking for years. I have looked and looked...I will take any format. I had even tried the Library of Congress, without luck.

These titles fall nicely into dad's Social Security records. That is, when he worked and where he worked. He did alot of "bit" work at Universal and Columbia.

btw...here is a link to my you tube page...that features many of dad's clips... one of my favorites...dad on roller skates.




Here you go. Thanks.

Thank you for looking...and thank you all for your patience.

Parry Hall (Eddie Hall's kid).

Hi Parry,

Thought you'd be interested to know that I've found a DVD copy of The Boy from Stalingrad on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Boy-Stalingrad-B ... stalingrad

Is that the one you're looking for?

I've looked through some of my video files and it turns out I have a digital copy of "The Strange Case of Dr. Meade." Do you know if this film is in the public domain, or is it still under copyright?
