Flivvers Are All Right, Too, But It's Tramp-Tramp-Tramp For Mine -- June 18, 2013

After he left Mack Sennett, Harry Langdon's first feature on a lucrative First National contract was Tramp Tramp Tramp, the story of cross-country walking race.  This ad is from the 05-March-1926 Film Daily. It is the third of a series of cross-country ads to parallel the race. Yesterday he was in Pittsburgh and today he is in Detroit.  Naturally, he mentions the mass production of the Model T Ford.  Next stop, Indianapolis. Unfortunately, I couldn't find that edition, so we'll skip to Saint Louis.
