What Talkies Are You Watching?

Just finished up Easter Parade from 1946 with Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. Ann Miller was gorgeous!

I’ve not seen that one—it sounds enjoyable.

The only talking thing I can think of that I’ve watched lately is “Hypnotized,” an early sound effort of Mack Sennett’s. (1933, I believe.)

Remember R Michael on the old GS board? He once described it, I believe, as the worst sound comedy feature ever made. Well, I knew I’d sometime have to watch it out of morbid curiosity.

Yep. It’s pretty bad. Worst ever, I don’t know, but...yep, it’s pretty bad. :lol:

You trying to tell me you didn't hear that shriek? That was something trying to get out of its premature grave, and I don't want to be here when it does. - Phantom of the Paradise (1974)

I’m not sure if it’s available anywhere online. I actually bought the dvd of it. :oops: Well, it was cheap. I actually tried to sell that dvd on ebay with some others a few days ago. No takers, so I ended up donating it to Goodwill. :D.

I did handbrake it to my hard drive before donating, so if you are really a glutton for punishment, I could upload it. :lol:
