PHYLLIS DILLER 1920?

Hello, friends---Here's a 1920 hand-drawn ad for an obscure comedy series. What are the odds there was an early comedienne with the same name as the 1960's star?----Cole Johnson.

MYSTERY HAM AND BUD STILL

Hello, photo experts----Here's an odd still from the HAM AND BUD series. Ham is in his full garbageman chic outfit, slapshoes in hand, threatening Bud in a hospital room.

Re: Need info on "Help Yourself" (1927) NOW WITH PICTURES

Re: Moonshine/Pie and Rye Lloyd Hamilton

I've seen the Pathescope condensation of this film, with it's proper title, MOONSHINE. Is there a different version called PIE AND RYE? On one of the (I believe) FRACTURED FLICKERS episodes, there was footage from this film not seen in the commonly found version.
