THE GREEN CAT

PostSun Mar 12, 2017 10:59 am

Found this as an extra on one of my disks, but can't find any info on the film. It runs about 15 minutes and I assume is an abridged version of a 3-reel comedy. There's a 6 minute Pathescope 9.5 scope version on YT but this is a different version: longer, different lettering, etc. The only IMDB listing for this title is a 1915 Constance Talmadge short.

There's not a lot of info around on this one, but according to the Moving Picture World it was originally a Pollard two-reeler that was released on August 4, 1923.

There's a 1915 film with this title but it stars Constance Talmadge.

The YT posting says the Pollard film was a 3-reeler, which sounds doubtful.

This was also released in Australia, but I have found no record of it until 1925. Because Snub was Australian, his pictures sometimes got a little more publicity than they did in America:
