Make Him a Modern Jester in the Court of Good Will -- February 3, 2019

Motion Picture News, 08-February-1919
100 years ago this month, in February, 1919, Larry was featured in a full page ad for a "Big 'V' Special Comedy," Scamps and Scandal.  Vitagraph liked alliterative titles.

Larry receives a mention in the fine print of this ad.  Montgomery and Rock get larger billing and two photos from "Love and Lather."  More alliteration.

All twelve titles are alliterative, if I counted correctly.

Larry made a trip to New York for "routine business."

If Larry took a fast train, like the Southern Pacific's Sunset Limited or Golden State or the Santa Fe's California Limited or Chief, the trip each way would have taken four nights.
