Re: The Economists 1917

Harry Langdon for Swift Premium

With the theme of comedians (and Louise Brooks! - many thanks, Robert) appearing in comic strips, the following fits right in, and it just fell into my lap - literally. I was looking in a Kalton Lahue book this morning, and a yellowed clipping fell out - Harry Langdon & Lita Chevret in a pose fr...
