    I prefer Lloyd to Keaton or Chaplin.

    Having shown all three to large live audiences, I can tell you for a fact that Lloyd gets more and bigger laughs. I love them all, and Harry Langdon too, but Lloyd is by far the biggest crowd-pleaser.

    When I show them to my students, they enjoy Lloyd and Keaton much more than Chaplin. :D

    Rainbow Room. Black Poodle Lounge. Voo Doo Room. Here's an interesting run down on Nashville's Printers Alley.

    I may be considered a philistine by some in this group, but Chaplin has never done a thing for me.

    Unfortunately Printer's Alley has gotten "Disneyfied', sort of like Times Square. Not worth the effort, and is almost only for tourists these days.
    Once upon a time it was a pretty good "Den of Iniquity".

    The guy with the black poodle in the picture was "Skull" Schulman, a genuine character. His usual attire was a checked suit in a sort of reddish color and he'd walk his poodle around town on a daily basis.
    The whole city mourned his murder.

    Sorry for the crappy cellphone camera quality, but here's some modern neon signage at Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, which I snapped last weekend.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I took the kids to Disney World a few years ago. We had a package that included a pass to each of the four parks. I didn't necessarily think the Hollywood Studios was the most fun one, but it definitely was the best looking one.
