Your site doesn’t seem to be letting me post a comment right now–just wanted to say that I enjoyed this review of one of Buster’s better MGMs! And I totally agree that Jim Parsons does indeed look an awful lot like Buster, particularly his profile. 😀 Thanks for joining the blogathon!

I tried to send you a message but I’m not sure if it worked sorry if I’m spamming you 😉
Thank you so much! 🙂
Okay it may be seen as silly but why are per-talkie films called “silents” when they’re not silent? Yes I realize that it was the discreation of cinemas and the like to have musical accompaniment while showing the films. However, I think film makers where aware of this and must have had music in mind themselvesz. As well later on when films were rereleased many had sound affects added.
Perhaps it was because there was no soundtrack embedded in the film itself. All theaters always had musical accompaniment with their films–although the quality of the music could vary quite a bit depending on the venue and what kind of budget they had! Thanks for stopping by.
