Steve Massa, Ben Model and other assorted cinegoons keep poking around the Museum of Modern Art in NYC and those Cruel and Unusual Comedy Boys keep making my day!  Just heard that they have found a fragment of a rare LKO comedy that features Babe Hardy.  FRECKLED FISH was one of the "Charlie of the Orient" films.  Can't wait to see it!!

Wonderful news, Rob! Lost films always turn up at times I don't think about them. So maybe it's better for me NOT to think about them! :-)

Huzzah and a tip of the derby to Eileen Bowser for preserving this (among many other slapstick comedies) during her tenure/reign at MoMA's Dept of Film.
