Tenth and newest of the Mutual-Chaplin Specials -- April 23, 2017

Moving Picture World, 21-April-1917
"Tenth and newest of the Mutual-Chaplin Specials Depicting Charlie's visit to a health resort."  I remember a local Public Television station, KQED-Channel 9, playing "The Cure" during the 1970s.  I don't remember why they showed it, but I loved it.

An ad from Mutual says "The public is eagerly waiting for its screening, as newspapers all over the country have mentioned its coming."

"The theater man needs no special 'stunt' to attract the crowds when Charlie is the headliner -- all he needs is to make a big display of the name Charlie Chaplin to let the people know the time and the place they will all be there.  Chaplin's name is sufficient -- the people themselves will do the rest."

A capsule biography repeats the rumor that Chaplin was born in France.  He was not.

 A "pre-view" of "The Cure" shows Charlie Chaplin with nemesis Eric Campbell and love interest Edna Purviance.

Motography, 28-April-1917
"Edna Purviance as the girl scintillates with her usual brightness and the support is good as usual."

An ad for Globe Ventilators uses Chaplin's image.  "Even Chas. Chaplin, Esq., cannot fill your Theatre this summer if it is close, hot and stuffy."
