But when he sets eyes on Margie, the beautiful older sister of a tough named Clipper, Harmon forgets all about his rent money. ... One of Keaton's earliest ventures into sound film, SIDEWALKS OF NEW YORK brims with the comedian's trademark acrobatic antics and nonstop slapstick pandemonium"--Container

Dogville collection( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Early Sound Era, talent from all over - veteran vaudevillians, musical icons, radio personalities, Broadway luminaries - performed in specialty shorts augmenting main features that packed moviehouses. One particular pack stood out: the amazingly trained tail-waggers of the 9 "All-Barkie" Dogville Comedies. Directed by Zion Myers and Jules White, these unusual attractions showcased creatively costumed "talking" dogs of various breeds and spoofed the noble and naughty behaviors of people. They pulled off grrrreat rrrriffs of the era's movies, from unquiet Western Front war heroics and Great Woof Way musical extravaganzas to Great Whelp Hunter jungle expeditions and Prison Pups breakout thrills. A nationwide theatre owners poll in 1930 rated the Dogvilles as the best short subjects over more legendary comedy and musical series."--Container
