#WatchlistScreenCaps, 2/1 - 2/3


Here are the last ten films I watched, with a screen-captured image and caption. Linked titles lead to my posts on that film. In this and the following round-up, I watched five mini-"programs" of a short followed by a feature, usually with a link between them. Visit my #WatchlistScreenCaps archive for images from everything I've watched in the past year.

Charming to see the annoying Ned Ryerson, bedeviled Buster and his 'bustering' bride, and Charlie's soon-to-be-happy Tramp mixed in with such august company! Great selections Joel .

Yeah I'm not sure how much comedy has made it on to my viewing list in the past year, come to think of it. The next week, my last I doing #WatchlistScreenCaps, will largely be devoted to plugging gaps or holes in my visual viewing diary, so it's appropriate that comedy finally gets some pictures in edgewise.
