It’s Women’s History Month! And the best way possible for fans of silent comedy to celebrate and observe it this year is to get the new Alice Howell Collection from my good friends at Undercrank Productions.
Silent funny-lady Alice Howell has been called the Female Chaplin. It’s an imperfect analogy but be that as it may, in the few films I’ve seen her in, she is appealing, original and hilarious. I’ve not yet screened the ones in the new set, but based on Howell’s work, and the previous Undercrank releases, I’m confident recommending it sight unseen.
The Alice Howell Collection is officially available on March 5; meantime you can pre-order it here.
