(1929) William Black, Viola Richard, directed by Charles L. Glett. Don’t bother looking, you won’t find this incredibly rare American-made crime featurette in any of the major film research books or websites. It’s a little creaky but interesting—especially from a film history perspective. PLUS: BOTHERED BY A BEARD (1945) Tod Slaughter, Jerry Verno, John Salew. This rare comedy/horror short is a real tongue-in-cheek oddball item about the bothersome aspects of beards! Todd does a short reprisal of his Sweeny Todd character. Great fun! From 16mm.
