I thought I spotted Bob McKenzie (at the 43 second mark, behind Frank A's right shoulder), but wasn't he at L-KO at the time...? Or is this just after?

It's definitely Bob McKenzie, but remember this was shot at the height of the Influenza epidemic, and studios were shutting down and re-opening with much irregularity, and everyone seemed to be working where there was work.
