Help! In What movie Appear White Mouses and a Piano? [20 Feb 2008|07:21am]

I have a question about a movie I have no idea:

I have a friend who need to know the tittle of a movie he watched it has a lot of time, when he was a kid. The only reference he can give me is that in the movie appeared two guys who - he doesn't remember by which reason -, filled a house with lot of mouses. It seems that all the animals went up and down by all the house and even inside a piano (the piano scene is what he remembers the best). He saysalso  he is nearly sure the guys weren't Laurel & Hardy. He is not sure even if it is a silent movie or an early talkie. He don't knows if it is a short of a long movie either. I know I don't give you very much information really. Not that bad as a challenge, eh?

I had several thoughts: There are mice in a Charley Bowers movie and I remember something with mouses in a Max Linder short but I have to admit I have a mess in my memory now.

Thank you very much for any information you can give me.

I tried to include others but that would only make it complicated.

Raymond Griffith [21 Mar 2005|05:07pm]
Hi there, welcome to my on-topic introductory post.

Raymond Griffith (1895 - 1957) was the comedic fop whose rise began at the time of Max Linder's demise, and ebb preceded William Powell's prominence in the 1930s. He entered pictures in 1915, and later worked as a gagwriter and assistant director for Mack Sennett.

Walter Kerr, author of The Silent Clowns has written of Griffith:
"Raymond Griffith seems to me to occupy a handsome fifth place -- after Chaplin, Keaton, Lloyd, and Langdon -- in the silent comedy pantheon, a place this is his by right of his refusal to ape his contemporaries and his insistence on following the devious curve of an entirely idiosyncratic eye."

Some links to Griffith Web pages:

www.silentsaregolden.com/ featurefolder/raymondgriffithbio.html - Silents are Golden

Wedding Bill$ (1927, Paramount) and Time to Love (1927, Paramount) were Griffith's last starring roles for Paramount. Both of these are lost films. He quit acting in 1930, after his appearance in "All Quiet on the Western Front," and became an associate producer.

I have three Griffith films: "Hands Up!", "Paths to Paradise" and "The Night Club."
