Here's a request I thought the collective minds of ARSC and AMIA might shed some light on - Though he committed suicide in 1925, making radio audio doubtful, did Max Linder, the French comic of stage and screen, ever make any recordings? Original query is below.

I write you from Spain. We are working on an independent documentary about French silent film star Max Linder, who lived in USA in 1917-1928 and 1921-1922. We are looking for any recording of Max voice; he was a big star i his time and maybe some radio recording may survive. Our research has been unsuccessful for now. We have found your website address through Nitrateville; may you help us? Do you have any reference about any Max's voice recording?
