Aside from “Big Business”, “You’re Darn Tootin”, “Two Tars” and “Liberty” were there any other SILENT L&H titles released with music/sound effects?

Habeas Corpus: S-8, scored and not a Vitaphone score.
Bacon Grabbers:S-8, Vitaphone score.
That's My Wife: S-8, Vitaphone score.

The Battle OF The Century Pie Fight, with a scored sound track but
The Battle OF The Century extended version contains an organ score by Gaylord Carter.

Aside from Blackhawk's music score on Liberty, I'm unsure if Blackhawk released Liberty containing the Vitaphone score on S-8. Film Preservation Associates The Blackhawk Collection, (FPA) restored the 16's with the Vitaphone track.

I'm unsure that Wrong Again with the Vitaphone score was released on S-8,
but FPA released 16's containing the Vitaphone score.

Angora Love containing the Vitaphone score was only available on S-8 when FPA reopened The Blackhawk Library, releasing a limited amount of S-8 prints for a brief period of time. The Vitaphone score is also available on 16mm by FPA.

FPA restored Do Detectives Think? The picture is superb 35mm quality and contains the Vitaphone score.

Shorty,

Thanks for the clarity on Wrong Again, and was this short released by Blackhawk, or FPA?
My favorite Vitaphone score is on Bacon Grabbers, and 99% in Liberty.
The part of Liberty from The Blackhawk score that I prefer is when Stan is pulling the rope, trying to hold on, balancing on the ladder while he's grabbing for his dear life.

The complete version of Habeas Corpus is recognizable from when Leo The Lion Roars, the sound of the roar is a French Horn or Tuba musical instrument.

I love it when The Boys are running on the cemetery grounds, Stan's walking with the sack he calls: Babe and later chasing behind Ollie and you can read his lips shouting: "Hey Babe!", the beloved name called by his friends, Babe Hardy.

What I love is even in the silents, you'll see Ollie mouth "Why don't you do something to HELP me?!!"

My favorite among this bunch is "You're Darn Tootin'"

-a silent musical! (That's pretty daring!)

I wouldn't like it half as much without John Phillip Sousa's help, I'm sure!

"Where's your license?"
"We have no dog!"

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

I like that: A silent musical, the same as in the early days, people listened to Fred Astaire tap dancing on the radio.
