I Just Sent a Mormon on a Laughing Jag -- November 14, 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 15-March-1926 Film Daily. It is one of a series of cross-country ads to parallel the race. Here he arrives in Salt Lake City and makes a joke about a Mormon with nine wives.  Next stop, Los Angeles.
