Movieland Puzzles

I was able to find the Harry Langdon puzzle for sale on ebay, along with the box and two other puzzles it came with. The seller had a pretty good description, so I included that, too.

The seller's description:

MOVIE-LAND CUT UPS" PHOTO PUZZLES SET - (c) 1930 Wilder Mfg. Co. 10-1/2" x 8-1/2" x 1-1/4" colorful graphic box with bright "Hollywood" cartoon imagery. Original set of 3 full color jigsaws (each 10-1/8" x 7-3/4", color litho on die-cut cardboard) - "Our Gang" (MGM-Hal Roach), "Harry Langdon" (MGM-Hal Roach), and "Only The Brave" (Paramount, a Gary Cooper western. This is a wagon train landscape vista scene and Cooper does not appear in puzzle).

The artwork on the box shows a mixture of  more or less generic characters and some recognizable caricatures of period movie stars such as Clara Bow, Harold Lloyd, and Charlie Chaplin ( left ).

Harry Langdon in a fantasy scene set in the far north.

I don't think this is a scene from any of his films.
Our Gang in a scene set in ancient Rome.
This looks like a scene from one of their films.

A covered wagon from ONLY THE BRAVE.
