Larry Semon Two-Reeler ... Has Not as Much Semon Clown Stuff as Usual -- July 1, 2019

Bisbee Daily Reporter, 02-July-1919
100 years ago this month, in July, 1919, Larry Semon was busy making two reelers for Vitagraph.

Moving Picture World, 19-July-1919
"Considerable Monkey Business Apparent in New Larry Semon Vitagraph Comedy."

Moving Picture World, 19-July-1919
Larry's movie about the stage had a cast of 150, "which is a record for two reel comedy productions."

Moving Picture World, 26-July-1919
"... it features the eggs, cops and mud puddles which Larry usually avoids in his fun-making."  Avoids mud puddles?  That doesn't sound like the Larry that I know.
