Larry Semon -- Now Helping to Lengthen the Line in Front of the Box-Office -- October 1, 2021


Moving Picture World, 29-October-1921

100 years ago this month, Larry Semon appeared in a two-page ad for four of his Vitagraph short comedies, "The Rent Collector," "The Bakery," "The Bell Hop," and "The Fall Guy." I like the photo of Larry in the lower left corner.

I have learned that Larry Semon drew the caricature in this ad. Below is a version signed by Larry. Note how the advertisers spelled Pauline Frederick's name.
