Harry Carey -- Sweeping the Country Like a Landslide -- January 11, 2022

Pueblo Chieftan, 11-January-1922

This laconic newspaper ad seems to say that "Harry Carey in The Fox is a Bear." A bear?

Motion Picture News, 14-January-1922

Universal advertised The Fox as "The Year's Big Spectacle."

"Sweeping the Country Like a Landslide" may not have been a good choice of words. 

Moving Picture Weekly, 28-January-1922

"Exploitation Suggestions" includes covering an electric streetcar with 24-sheet (billboard-sized) ads.

At the same time that Universal was ballyhooing the heck out of  The Fox, Harry Carey had already left Universal and said he had no definite plans for the future. .
