Some Universal News -- August 15, 2014

The Universal Film Manufacturing Company was very good at advertising.  Mary Fuller was a big star taken from Edison.  Her leading man Charles Ogle, who also came Edison was the first person to play Frankenstein's Monster on the screen.  Mary Pickford was the biggest silent star.  I have never seen a movie with Matty Roubert, the Universal Boy.  Ford Sterling was a major comic who had been at Keystone.  Pathé Lehrman had also come from Keystone.  Billie Ritchie claimed that Charlie Chaplin copied his costume and act.
