Laugh Days Every Wednesday and Friday -- July 2, 2014

The Vitagraph Company of America was one of the major film producers 100 years ago.  John Bunny was a popular performer in Vitagraph comedies like "A Cure for Pokeritis" (1912), "Hearts and Diamonds" (1914) and "The Pickwick Papers" (1913). He was born to play Mr Pickwick. This Vitagraph ad is from the 23-May-1914 Moving Picture World.  Be sure to click on the images to see larger versions.
