Work, of course.

Night, back to the Grand Illusion for Through the Porthole, a Tribute to Dennis Nyback

Another big house. Busby Berklee. Count Bassie. Casey at the Bat. Laurel and Hardy. A pre Al Jolson soundie. A German movie predating the early French Lumiere movies.

It’s intermission, now for the adult fare. Which included, among others, Shirley Temple at 5 yrs old. The film was about a lady in a bar, with lots of soldiers, all vying for her attention before they were called back to work. Except they were all small kids, and “the lady,” took payment in lollipops. War Babies, her first speaking role. Check it out. Rather disturbing.
