Billy Dooley in A Reckless Romeo

Unread post by Rob Koeling » Wed Aug 15, 2018 3:38 pm

I was just watching a 16mm print of this, but can't find any info on it. Was it released under a different name?
If so, as what? What year was it released? In this short he rents a car after learning how to drive from a manual. Then picks up his girl.

Anyone know anything about it?

The film is DIZZY SIGHTS released by Christie on 12-17-1927. This is one of my favorite Dooleys.

It's on a reel with several other shorts, so not entirely sure, but I am fairly sure it is 400'.
