It was on the Facebook Silent Film Group page. I’d seen that one before, but in lower resolution.

Re: The Couple Next Door

Yes, it sounds like that’s what he did. That makes me think of the old Orson Welles infamous War of the Worlds live broadcast from the ‘30’s. Have you ever listened to that? I remember that one of the actors flubbed up his lines pretty good in some similar fashion. There were all kinds of unedited b...

Re: The Couple Next Door

I've actually heard the phrase "that's for true" used before, as kind of a colloquial way of saying "that's true"—I think I may have actually used it myself. :) Although here, the hesitation does make it sound possibly unintended.

Re: Broadway During The Day In 1929

Both those were very interesting. On the top one, did you notice all the marquees advertising talkies? ("Vitaphone House of Talkies" :D ) I wonder if the sound is authentic or is some generic added.

For some reason we didn't do that with all of them, and some of them were deleted from youtube. I figured some of the...
