Original Description:
This is a rare reduction print struck in 1977 of a very early version of BERTH MARKS with the original HAL ROACH TITLES. Unlike the Blackhawk Films version, there is NO MUSIC over the opening credits or the opening sequence at the train station. There are also no addition SOUND EFFECTS. Music and effects were added to 1936 re-releases so the source material must be from a 1929 print. I've only had another print like this (THEY GO BOOM) and it's a nice little rarity. Sound effects ...such as the baby crying in the sleeper berth, interior train sounds et cetera are not on this print. Even the clonk on Stan's head from Ollie's thrown rock at the end is different than later releases. There is no music over THE END card either. The picture has deep contrast at times and the sound track is low in a few scenes but I don't think this movie was miked very well as a lot of Stan and Ollie's dialogue seems ad libbed and thrown away. There are some lines from the source material and printed in splices. There is no vinegar smell. (SEE SCREEN CAPS)
From 1929 and directed by Lewis R. Foster BERTH MARKS co-stars Pat Harmon (as the mumbling train announcer) and Charlie Hall. The boys play a pair of vaudeville musicians on their way to a performance in Pottsville. After creating a major ruckus in the salon car they retire to their sleeping berth where they find it extremely difficult to climb into and then settle down to sleep in. By the time they do, the next stop is announced by the train's conductor-- POTTSVILLE!
Don't let this rare print get away! Good luck!
 PAYPAL ONLY AND I SHIP PRIORITY MAIL MEDIUM FLAT RATE BOX. I only use Ebay's Global Shipping Program for overseas sales. Also, I CANNOT combine shipping on overseas items. Each film must be shipped individually. GOOD LUCK!
