Larry Semon -- Zigoto -- November 1, 2021

Moving Picture World, 26-November-1921

100 years ago, Larry Semon was popular in the United States, but he was equally popular in many other countries. Those countries usually identified him by a single name. In France, Larry was Zigoto. In Italy, he was Ridolini. In the 1920s, Spanish-speaking audiences called him Jaimito. When the Spanish versions were rereleased in 1940, he was called Tomasín.

Please don't make any jokes about William Farnum in drag. He didn't have the legs for it.
