Into the Heart of the Heart of America -- August 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 09-March-1926 Film Daily. It is one of a series of cross-country ads to parallel the race.  Here he arrives in Kansas City, "the heart of the heart of America."  Next stop, Des Moines.
