I'm probably beyond obsessed, but it is SO awesome to find validation and in some cases even information that had been lost. For example, the film I was seeking information on is not in Mr B's official AFI (crappy AFI, I should say) filmography, nor in Wiki (I can fix that), BUT it was in IMDb: The Bartered Crown, released January 10, 1914, starring LB and Betty Gray in a melodrama. I only found it because I was surfing for 1914 information and it popped up in a trade magazine, then I found the Biograph ad:
I love my avocation. I love my job, too, and I love I have a nice cozy place to curl up when I need to nod off after hours at work because I stayed put researching and making notes.
Say goodnight, Lionel:
