Wally Reid -- What's Your Hurry? -- August 30, 2013

Photoplay Magazine had a page titled "Why-Do-They-Do-It?"  Fans could submit bloopers they had noticed in movies.  Wallace Reid was a popular leading man in the early 1920s, who appeared in many light comedies that involved racing cars.  This example is from the January, 1921 Photoplay.  After being injured while doing a stunt in 1919, Reid became addicted to pain killers and died while trying to break the addiction in 1923.  Be sure to click on the image to see a larger version.
