Charley Chase was the top box office comedian in short subject films of the 1920s, and in 1923 he began working with director Leo McCarey for Hal Roach Studios. The two comic geniuses worked brilliantly together, and would go on to make 45 shorts and two-reelers together, producing some of the finest comedies of the 1920's. Upon his death in 1940, McCarey said of Chase, "Whatever success I have had or may have, I owe to his help because he taught me all I know."
10 x 7.75 inches. Very Good plus, with even fading, light creasing in margin, and a very small chip to top left corner. (Inventory #: 151915)
