Phunphilms Produced by Rolin -- December 28, 2015

Moving Picture World, 11-December-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. Luke appears in the image above.  I assume that the damsel in distress is Bebe Daniels. Snub appears in the image below. 

The films were released by Pathé.

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