OLLY OF THE MOVIES - FAMOUS FUNNIES #12



Olly is slated to work with "Gloria Sampson", a name that reminds us of Gloria Swanson.



They're supposed to be looking at screen tests at the bottom of the page, and the pictures are in black and white because the movies at that time were usually in black and white. 




When you're working in the movies, you have to wait between shots for the next shot to be set up. That's what they're talking about in the last panel.

  1. Dale remarked that the man Olly is talking to in the first panel is intended to be a Jew. The motion picture business was a Jewish business.
