Billy West in His Latest Fun-Maker -- July 19, 2018

Motion Picture News, 06-July-1918
Billy West closely imitated Charlie Chaplin in a long series of comedies for different studios. While Chaplin was making the excellent Mutual comedies, West was making imitations of Chaplin's Essanay comedies. When Chaplin moved on to First National distribution, Billy West was still making comedies for King-Bee. King-Bee comedies were distributed by the Bee Hive Exchange.  Great name.

Oliver Hardy supported Billy in "Straight and Narrow."
