New issue of The Lost Laugh magazine on the way…



The next issue of THE LOST LAUGH magazine is nearing completion at last!

Our cover star this time is British silent comedian Walter Forde; in this issue we focus on his early career and short films, with his feature films to follow in the next issue.

Last time we looked at Monty Banks’ starring comedies. Issue 12 continues his story into the sound era, examining his handful of starring films, and his work as a director.

Other articles will include:

*some of Roscoe Arbuckle’s most obscure films

*Mabel Normand’s missing film ONE HOUR MARRIED.

*New DVDs featuring Lupino Lane, Laurel & Hardy, Charley Chase and Harry Langdon

*Screening notes on some rare films from Hal Roach and Mack Sennett studios.

*Reproduced articles  and rare stills from trade magazines
