W.C. Fields, Louise Brooks, It's The Old Army Game fully indentified

Unread post by SilentEchoes57 » Fri Aug 17, 2018 9:33 pm

I've really enjoyed the new Blu-ray release of W. C. Fields and Louise Brooks in It's The Old Army Game (1926). There were so many details and locations that I ended up doing six posts about it.

The latest post covers Fields filming on 5th Ave in New York, where Lloyd and Keaton would later film.

I have three posts about Fields and Brooks running around the town square and train station in Ocala, Florida.

There's also a post about the messy picnic Fields and his family have on the El Mirasol Stotesbury estate in Palm Beach Florida. https://silentlocations.wordpress.com/2 ... army-game/

There's even a post about all of the March and April 1926 magazines appearing behind Brooks and Fields during the movie. https://silentlocations.wordpress.com/2 ... s-to-life/

Thanks for listening - cheers, John
