No Time
for Comedy
Warner Bros.

We begin with five stills of 1930's funnymen Wheeler and Woolsey.  Four of them are courtesy of Justin, and represent their films Dixiana and So This is Africa (3 photos and two film clips).  We added our own picture (scanned from an original 1934 photo) of  Bert Wheeler with Dorothy Lee in Cockeyed Cavaliers.  Bert Wheeler and Robert Woolsey are relatively forgotten comedians from the early 1930's; we hope to showcase their career with these images and clips.

Jane sent us six nice shots of Ginger Rogers and one of Elvis Presley.

Nick joined Jane in preparing two John Wayne scans:  The Quiet Man (with Maureen O'Hara) and Pittsburgh (with Randolph Scott).
