Phil was a real gentleman, and great to hang with at the film shows. I knew him since 1978; quite a loss.

Great musical, but unfortunately missing the last reel. Still, it was great to see it. Perhaps the Warner Archive will consider releasin...

For me, it's Douglas Fairbanks' THE BLACK PIRATE. It's such a grand production, and the Technicolor is great.
