Action/Thrills/Suspense/Stunts/Romance -- November 12, 2023

Film Daily, 04-November-1923

Fred Thomson (no relation) had a diverse career. While attending the Princeton Theological Seminary, he earned the Amateur Athletic Union's All-Around Champion trophy in 1910, 1911 and 1913. After being ordained as a Presbyterian minister, he joined the Army and served as a chaplain during World War One. He went into the movie business after he married director and screenwriter Frances Marion. In time, he became a major western star. Sadly, he died of Tetanus in 1928. 

I was surprised to see the name Monogram. This Monogram apparently had no relation to the famous B-movie studio of the 1930s.

Hoot Gibson's new film, Hook and Ladder, included scenes taken on a cattle train and in the Los Angeles stockyards. I would like to see that.
