Number Please?

Long time without talking about one of my secret loves...Silent Era...
These two movies I will recommend today I had the chance to watch them yesterday at night and they are some of the few Hal Roach movies that doesn´t really fit into the cheesy cliché directing He used to have.
With the work done with Harold Lloyd there is a transition from the amateurish films and soon about 1920 found like the formula of work with Hal Roach and two beautiful examples are:

"Number Please?" done in 1920 and directed by Hal Roach and an assistant, the lead actress as usual the lovely Mildred Davis.

"An Eastern Westerner" done also in 1920 almost same cast filmed by the incredible Pathé studios.

Have a glorious day!!!!
