STARVATION BLUES seems to be another vanished film.... except for a hundred-foot Kodascope cutdown, which can be looked at if you get a copy of the ACCIDENTALLY PRESERVED DVD from Amazon.com and poke around.... look at the DVD credits and it's there.
It stars Clyde Cook, one of the great fall-takers of the silent era, but one who never really made a memorable movie. If he's remembered, he's remembered for working with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy before they teamed up to become Laurel & Hardy.
Here's he's working with Stan Laurel. Stan helped write this and fans of L&H will recognize the situation: a street musician in the snow. Yes, it's the set-up from BELOW ZERO. It's all about the falls in the snow here, and Clyde takes them great.
Which is why, I suppose, this part still survives.
