Hal Roach Studio News

From the Hal Roach Studio page on facebook.

Mrs. Roach ran for office, but did not win.

Anita Louise wasn't in BABES IN TOYLAND, but she was popular at the time in other movies, such as A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM.

Marie Wilson was married to Nick Grinde when she was in BABES IN TOYLAND.

Patricia Ellis didn't actually make a movie for Hal Roach until BLOCKHEADS.

MPTOA stood for Motion Picture Theater Owners Of America, an organization whose members were owners of movie theaters. In other words this ad was aimed at the people who ran the films.

Thelma Todd wasn't replaced in 1934. She continued working for Hal Roach.

I've had this picture on the blog before. It's Lillian Ellis, only I hadn't known it at the time.
