Telling Whoppers -- March 9, 2014
"Telling Whoppers" was a short comedy with Hal Roach's Our Gang. Note that the ad also says "Hal Roach presents His Rascals." In this scene, Joe Cobb and Farina Hoskins confront Tuffy the bully. Please excuse the racist quality of the drawing. The Our Gang movies were not usually racist.
A note at the bottom of this ad from the 16-Decmber-1926 Film Daily says that this ad is a cornerblock provided to theaters to use in newspaper advertising.
