Bad Hair Day
Henry B. Walthall in the 1917 classic Bad Hair Day.
Just Kidding.



CHECK OUT www.oldies.com
For Walthall films on DVD in these handsomely decorated cases and discs. Police Court has photos of Henry on the front, back and spine of the case and on the disc (just as I would've designed it)! Phantom in the House has a photo of Henry on the back and a cool photo of him on the disc! Murder in the Museum has a pic of Henry's murder weapon demonstration on the back (kinda gives away the ending, huh). Other Walthall films available on this site as well for great prices (and even better prices if you shop around).

http://grapevinevideo.com/henry_b_walthall.htm I recommend purchasing The Raven through Grapevine video (you get Ghosts with it, too). You can also find some rare D.W. Griffith shorts through this site. The Walthall page on Grapevine only lists Volume 6, but Volumes 3, 4, and 5 also include early Walthall shorts that have not been released by Kino.


http://www.reelclassicdvd.com/ This company offers the ultra rare Boomerang and The Confession with a vocal introduction by Walthall devotee John Griggs.


Looking for rare films? Well, Nostalgia Family Video used to be a good source for Walthall Talkies not found anywhere else, but most of these films have been re-released on DVD and are offered on oldies.com. It's still a site worth checking out.

Check out my new tribute page for German actor/writer/director Gustav von Wangenheim (Hutter, Nosferatu)

Also check out my little sideline page (which is no longer "little," in fact, it is growing out-of-control); a salute to an unappreciated character on the Andy Griffith Show with a tribute to comedian Jack Burns.
It's something I like to call The Revenge of Warren Ferguson!
