Hi, All! This may be old news to the rest of you, but I thought it was worth mentioning. Happy Video is a website I've found that offers tons of classic material from the silent and early sound eras. There's stuff by Buster Keaton, Harry Langdon, Eddie Cantor, W.C Fields, Laurel & Hardy, Will Rogers, Burns & Allen, and yes, our very own Jack Benny! And that list is leaving out a lot! (Everything from Patsy Kelly to early TV stuff!) But the main reason I'm sending this message is to tell you that they offer "The Hollywood Revue of 1929!" Go to their home page, http://www.happyvideo.biz/ and click on -- believe it or not -- Marion Davies, and scroll down until you find the title of Jack's very first film! And if you click on Jack Benny himself, you'll find some early shorts! Well, I've rambled enough for now. Happy hunting!
