I'm a life long Rascals fan. As a kid, I was obsessed with them and as I got older my interest leveled off and receded somewhat, but these days I tend to prefer the silents to the talkies. Having only seen about a dozen silents (including a couple I own on Super 8 film), I was thrilled to watch and videotape the TCM marathon. I hope the silents are restored and released on DVD soon. My two favorites are Mary Kornman and Jackie Condon. Looking at the photos on this site, what struck me was how many times Mary and Jackie are next to each other. Those two seem to be next to each other more than any two other kids. I can only wonder if my two favorite Our Gangers happened to be best friends in real life. Mary and Jackie, I hope you both rest in peace, and know all the joy you and all the other Rascals gave me, and as you two are in Heaven, I hope you both will pray for me. Thank you Mary Kornman and Jackie Condon.

It is great seeing the silent "Our Gang" shorts on TCM. I have many of the silent "Our Gang" shorts on DVD and many of them are complete as far as I can see but as I watch certain shorts on TCM such as "Dog Daze", I noticed that there are certain scenes that are missing from my DVD example. As I have stated before, a small video company called Laughsmith had planned to release a DVD set of complete, uncut and digitally remastered "Our Gang" silent shorts but apparently there are some legal issues preventing Laughsmith from releasing this DVD set. They have been working on these shorts for about 5 years and it is a shame that it may never be released. Let us hope that either Laughsmith or some other video company will release these great shorts after all the legal mumbo jumbo is cleared up. We can only hope.

I just seen Mary in Fish Hooky on TMC, seeing the old Our Gang is always a joy.. When I was younger I never realized she was one of the original members making a guest appearance as a teen on Fish Hooky. She was such a cutey that died way to young. Thanks for creating this site for her, if any of you have the time stop by my Pete the Pup tribute site at:

A very beautiful woman and a very beautiful person. The world was made a little better by her presence.

Mr. Frank - As you can see that I have the same last name as Mary, and interestingly, I am from Weld County Colorado. I stumbled upon this website and I'm wondering if perhaps I may be related to her. I was wondering if you could help me to figure this out.
Thanks, Marsha

Mary was the original Leading Lady of Our Gang and the others that followed her in that role just were not, well Mary! Laughsmith Entertainment had planned to release a set of uncut digitally improved Our Gang silent shorts featuring Mary in most of them but apparently this set in some kind legal limbo. Hopefully this set will see the light of day in the near future. Like Shirley Temple, there will never be another Mary Kornman.

In the wake of John's most recent annual message of good cheer, I just want to point out something that is easy to take for granted in these days of instant online gratification. This website is a Mary Kornman Parthenon. The concentration of riches here seems on a par with the legendary wealth of Ali Baba's cave. This is a Mary-golden museum, but without a museum's untouchable sterility. This is a den, and it's cozy. Love lives here and shines in every photo generously shared and every word devotedly written. Website visitors are luckier than they may realize: this is the single best collection of Mary Kornman memorabilia on display in the world. And it is growing. Come back and visit often--with gratitude and wonder. "Feels like home to me/Feels like home to me/Feels like I'm all the way back where I belong..."--Linda Ronstadt; lyrics by Randy Newman.

Today is Mary’s birthday. It is also the fifth anniversary of the launching of this website, which honors the most beautiful and charming Mary Kornman.

I am happy to see many new people have “discovered” the joy of Mary and others have reacquainted themselves with her. This is most evident by some of the new youtube video compilations of Mary that have been uploaded, along with recent postings on this message board.

Northbreed1, your videos are outstanding! Thank you!

Randy, what can I say? Your commitment to finding as many photos of and information concerning Mary is still as strong as when you first started! Thank you for sharing your treasures with all of us!

Most of all, thank you Mary, for putting sunshine in so many hearts and a smile on so many faces!

Happy Birthday Mary!

When I was a kid, I saw Mary in a 16mm print of Commencement Day, struggling to deliver "Mary Had a Little Lamb" in front of the school class. Since then, that face has haunted me across time and space. She was born here in Idaho almost ninety-four years ago, and still enchants the world, even though she is long gone. Pretty amazing when you think about it.
