Comedy fans are cheering the sparkling DVD release of 18 early Charley Chase talkie comedy shorts. Featuring Charley in top form, beautiful prints, and insightful bonus commentary, Charley Chase: At Hal Roach: The Talkies Volume One 1930-31, is simply fantastic. You should buy a copy now to help ensure future volumes will be released.
Nearly every exterior in Chase's 1930 Fast Work is still standing. I show them all in this post. Here's a taste - the Havenhurst Apartments at Franklin and Whitley in Hollywood.
See all the other filming spots, including those where Charley, Stan Laurel solo, and Laurel & Hardy all filmed, in this post.
