Another night of Mack Sennett

As I mentioned last week, the exact time that verious Mack Sennett shorts will be airing on Thursday nights is a bit of a problem. TCM's online schedule is listing every one of tonight's shorts as having a 10-minute run time, which IMDb disagrees with. That, and it would cause severe scheduling problems. TCM lists four shorts as airing between 8:00 PM and 9:30 PM, which would mean there's a good 45 minutes for which TCM isn't accounting. IMDb doesn't list a run time for the first three, but the last, Court House Crooks is listed as 22 minutes.

The one I'd really like to see is Teddy at the Throttle, which comes sometime after 2:00 AM. It stars an 18-year-old Gloria Swanson, with support from Wallace Beery.
