We start off with a photo of Buster Keaton dreaming up new gags in his trailer during the filming of Spite MarriageKeaton has drawn a baseball diamond and the "form" to his left is a home-made scoring sheet.  The coins are to mark base runners as players reach base.  He is listening to a game on the radio while scoring the game play-by-play.  Thanks to Bob for providing this information!

Once again, many thanks to our fine guest contributors!

Here are more film clips for your enjoyment:

  • The Longest Day (1962) - Sever has prepared a clip featuring Sean Connery, Peter Lawford, and their countrymen fighting in WWII with guns and bagpipes, the music for which is apparently an acquired taste—Sever also upgraded our existing clip

  • The Lost Weekend (1945) - Sever upgraded our current clip

  • Mad Love (1935) - In this macabre sequence, madman organist Peter Lorre attempts to strangle Frances Drake, but is thwarted by the most miraculous knife throw in the history of cinema

  • Marianne (1929) - here we have Marion Davies, with a WWI French accent as thick as pâté de foie gras, cooking a roast pig intended for the officers, only to have it stolen by her soldier boyfriend (Lawrence Gray)

  • Night After Night (1932) - in this fast-paced sequence, brassy Mae West is out on the town with George Raft, Constance Cummings, Alison Skipworth, and Roscoe Karns—listen for her famous line about how she acquired her diamonds!

  • The Squall (1929) - exotic card-playing Myrna Loy tantalizes the local farmhand (Harry Cording) so much, he decides to break into song and then chase her behind either:  1) a straw house; or 2) the largest bale of hay we've ever seen—also look for ZaSu Pitts as the hectoring Lena

  • They Got Me Covered (1943) - John Abbott changes into Dorothy Lamour's clothes, while perplexed Bob Hope stands by...until a secret note is delivered (by young Arnold Stang) in a sandwich—also enjoy ditzy Phyllis Ruth at the end of the clip

Frances joins the party with three pictures of Buster Keaton in The General (1927), and a posed shot of Cary Grant.

Here are three nice shots from Gary:

Thanks to our guest contributors!

Enjoy these film clips:

  • A Shot in the Dark (1964) - Peter Sellers and Elke Sommer are on the job in a nudist camp, in this clip prepared by Sever

  • Arrowsmith (1931) - Sever prepared this clip, in which people doctor Ronald Colman becomes veterinarian for a week, and concocts a serum to help local ranchers with their sick cows—as is often the case, however, no good deed goes unpunished!

  • Dance, Girl, Dance (1940) - stage stooge Maureen O'Hara warms up (or cools down) the crowd for Lucille Ball, who belts out "Got the Jitterbug Bite"—this is a nice companion clip for Ann Sothern's similarly-themed ditty in Panama Hattie

  • Dream Wife (1953) - Deborah Kerr shows Betta St. John how to become a more assertive woman, and their intended victim, Cary Grant, finds that she's no longer the dream wife he envisioned

  • The Firefly (1937) - beautiful singer Jeanette MacDonald spurns Leonard Penn's advances—to make him jealous, she flirts with a man in the audience (Allan Jones)

  • Harum Scarum (1965) - Elvis Presley plays an actor who appears as a sheik, in this movie within a movie!
