Movie Diary 12/19/2011

Berth Marks (Lewis R. Foster, 1929). And a few other Laurel and Hardy films from the new ten-disc box set. This is one of the funniest: close quarters on a train, especially in the upper bunk, where the comedy is golden for being confined. Some of the jokes in these movies may show their age, but nothing withers the precise hilarity of Hardy’s glances at the camera.

At What a Feeling!, I go on longishly in 1983 about The Big Chill in the pages of the Seattle Film Society’s newsletter, The Informer. There is a theme to this week’s What a Feeling! reprints, I swear. Also, could someone please explain to me why my review of the Canadian aerobics film Heavenly Bodies drew almost 100 hits over the weekend?
