Plot involves the investigation of the reported theft of Norma Shearer's jewelry. Made by the National Vaudeville Artists (NVA) as part of a charity campaign and distributed free to theatres in 1931. After the showing a live speaker would come out and request donations. The film was rediscovered in 1972 in Britain, where it had been released in 1932 as "The Slippery Pearls," one of the Masquers Club comedy series for RKO.

  • ESKIMO TRAILS - A Father Hubbard Adventure produced in the 1930's, narrated by Lowell Thomas. Mint in the OB - $29
  • FARO NELL - 1929 Al Christie sound comedy starring Louise Fazenda. It has a brand of humour that you either get or you don't. If you don't, you are likely looking at it on the surface too much. The melodramatic awfulness of the dialogue is clearly an intentional throwback to the silent 'horse operas' of 20 years earlier. Pre-code sexual innuendo abounds in this one but you need to be paying attention to catch most of it. Altogether, FARO NELL is a comedic gem that deserves rediscovery. Near Mint 400' - $39
