Rolin-Pathe "Phunphilms" -- October 26, 2015

Motion Picture News, 02-October-1915

Rolin was a company founded by Hal Roach and Dan Linthicum. Harold Lloyd was their first comedy star. Bebe Daniels was their cute leading lady and Snub Pollard was Snub Pollard.

Lonesome Luke resembled Chaplin with some variations, like a thin mustache instead of a toothbrush, and tight pants instead of baggy.

The films were released by Pathé.

Funny spellings like Phunphilms were popular in the Teens.  There was the Kissel Kar, for example.
