See the Pictures You'll See the Reason -- April 29, 2017

Moving Picture World, 21-April-1917

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.

Two reel comedies were more prestigious than one reelers.  They also cost more than twice as much and took more than twice as long to produce.  They were a bigger risk.

 "Harold Lloyd, the star of Pathe's "Lonesome Luke" Comedies, has, in less than a year and a half, become one of the few great screen comedians in this country."

Moving Picture World, 14-April-1917
"One super-excellent two reel comeday a month."
