Olly Of The Movies Pt. 4




OLLY OF THE MOVIES was a comic strip about a girl trying to break into the movie business, which was reprinted in FAMOUS FUNNIES. Here are the strips from FAMOUS FUNNIES #8.


This episode says the brunette is a famous comedienne, and she's teamed with a blonde in this story. It's the same period as the Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly comedies, but the two girls in this story probably have more in common with other comic trip girls of the day than they do with Thelma Todd and Patsy Kelly.




The name "Von Storm" brings to mind directors Erich Von Stroheim and Josef Von Sterberg, both of whom were familiar faces in Hollywood at the time.
