Chaplin -- Bring Everyone from Grandpa to the Baby -- July 20, 2022

Moving Picture World, 01-July-1922

The Skouras Brothers owned a number of theaters around Saint Louis. In later years, they went into film production. I remember when Spyros Skouras died in 1971. This story tells how did a shared ad for Charlie Chaplin's "Pay Day" between two of their theaters.

Saint Louis Post-Dispatch, 13-July-1922

Here is the original ad, which is a little easier to read.

First National was rereleasing Chaplin's "A Dog's Life," which was his first production for that company.

Triumph Pictures was selling (not leasing) prints of (I presume) his movies for Keystone.
