Monkey Business -- February 7, 2017

Film Daily, 15-March-1926

"Monkey Business" was a short comedy with Hal Roach's Our Gang.  Note that the ad also says "Hal Roach presents His Rascals."  A chimp breaks out of the zoo and befriends Alan "Farina" Hoskins, an Aftican-American child.  Please excuse the racist quality of the drawing.  The Our Gang movies were not usually racist. 

A note at the bottom of this ad from the 15-March-1926 Film Daily says that this ad is a cornerblock provided to theaters to use in newspaper advertising.
