You Can't Beat Hamilton Comedies -- February 6, 2014

In his wonderful book The Silent Clowns, Walter Kerr suggested that Lloyd Hamilton was one of the great silent comics whose reputation has diminished. This is because many of the solo movies Hamilton made for Educational during the 1920s are lost.  Perhaps this is also because he was not able to succeed as a star in feature films. 

The ad is from the 12-December-1926 Film Daily.  Note his bow tie and shoes.
