Personally Directed by Al E Christie -- September 27, 2017

Moving Picture World, 15-September-1917

The Christie Film Company was a major producer of short comedies from 1911 to 1933.  Al Christie was the director and Charles Christie ran the business.  The Christies featured situation comedy more than the slapstick favored by Mack Sennett and Hal Roach.  Christies frequently featured pretty girls in bathing suits. Actress Betty Compson later starred in feature films.

 Note that the San Francisco exchange was at 100 Golden Gate Avenue.  Many film businesses were on Golden Gate.  I used to go to a lab there to get my black and white Super 8 film developed.
