It's been said that today Irvin S. Cobb is remembered mainly for his famous horror story FISHHEAD, the tale of a black man murdered by two white men, who afterwards are eaten up by the catfish that had been Fishhead's friends. But Irvin S. Cobb is also remembered for his contributions to classic comedy films as well, particularly those of his friend Will Rogers.
Here we see him with Hal Roach.
Thelma Todd with Irvin S. Cobb, also 1934.
Another version with director Gus Meins.
