TCM aired "The Extra Girl" in 2012 as part of the "Mack Sennett on TCM" mini-fest. I thought it would be included in the Mack Sennett Blu-ray set that came out later, but it wasn't. So I'm glad I recorded the TCM broadcast.
It is included in The Mack Sennett Collection Vol 1.

Re: new DVD - restored 1913 Kinetophone shorts

I haven't watched the entire DVD yet, so I may be misspeaking here, but I'm wondering if they were focusing more on showcasing synchronized sound with film versus making great films. Watching the "history of" mini-documentary on the set (which I highly recommend!) you get the distinct impression th...

Re: "The Extra Girl" (1923) TCM tonight, 1/13/19.

Kino released this on DVD a while back with an organ score by Jack Ward. I fell in love with the film on that DVD, although I now prefer the version on The Mack Sennett Collection.

Just ordered the calendar. Thank you for keeping this going! And if you need a present for a film fan, you can pick up a copy of our CDs Entreaty or Love, Betrayal, and Redemption as part of the same order! Just use the "Add to Cart" button. I own both of these CDs and can highly recommend them!

SUSPENSE by Lois Weber, because they inadvertently capture both Nestor Studios and the Lasky-DeMille Barn in the chase sequence.
Are they spotted in the rear view mirror around the 7 minute mark?

This is a great film; the first time I saw it I was blown away.

Re: Win Pioneers: First Women Filmmakers from Kino Lorber

Mine is The Blot (1921), directed by Lois Weber. I just really like this film. It's a social/message picture for sure, but very well made. I saw it early in my discovery of silent films and it will always remain one of my favorites.

Are there any recognizable silent film locations in LA area parks (Echo, MacArthur, etc.)? I will be in the area for a couple of days and would love to see something familiar, but I'm sure with growth and the changing landscape it may be a challenge. Due to limited time I won't be able to do much re...
