  1. This is going to be interesting. Anything for a laugh. My therapy , is to just before sleep, I go to ‘StreamDor’, —– Comedy —– 1910-1940 —- . All those brilliant silent ‘2 reelers’ are there, and you can’t go wrong. A fifteen minute laugh before you dose off is priceless.

  2. There was a time when classic silent ‘2 reelers’ were shown on TV-Chaplin, Keaton, Keystone Cops, Laurel and Hardy etc-even the odd silent movie like Buster’s ‘The General’ or D W Griffiths ‘Birth Of A Nation’ (well it seems like a comedy now, even if unintendedly so) but not very much now.
