“`I am thrilled to spend this upcoming Saturday with the members of the Laurel and Hardy Appreciation Society Saps at Sea tent. This group is a fervant bunch of L&H loyalists, who are part of an international contigent whose united purpose is to celebrate Stan and Babe by keeping their memory alive.

“`At the event, we will focus on the moviemaker who worked in the 1950s on keeping silent films relevent through a series of documentary compilations: ROBERT YOUNGSON. An Oscar-winning filmmaker of two-reelers while at Warner Brothers,  he remained a preservationist and is now considered the Martin Scorsese of his day as he introduced silent movies to a new generation of movie-goers, the Baby Boomer generation. Portions of Laurel and Hardy silents are in his compilations such as Two Tars, Big Business, The Second Hundred Years and the previously lost, Battle of the Century.


“`Forgotten Hollywood is joining tents of the Laurel and Hardy Appreciation Society in a campaign to get  The Golden Age of Comedy and When Comedy was King added to the Library of Congress Film Registry for 2023. THE GOOD NEWS… It is FREE to vote for these masters of preservation on the Film Registry site of the LOC.  All it takes is a few minutes to vote.

“`This event is being held on Saturday, 7p at  Williams Hall, 3902 Kenwood Dr, Spring Valley CA 91977. Donation of $7 per person at the door (age twelve and under is free); refreshments included. The Saps at Sea will be screening The Golden Age of Comedy and I will autograph paperbacks in my Forgotten Hollywood Book Series.

“`Come on down and join us for an evening of frivolity, antics and sappy fun!

Until next time>                               “never forget”
