CULLEN LANDIS-Silent Comic/Industrial Director-SEE GAG REEL

While best recalled for the serious roles in his 14-year 101-film, Hollywood career,
Cullen Landis starred in several comedy features, as well as 22 comedy shorts
(almost exclusively as the leading man for Billie Rhodes ).
Though he scored big in the 1st all-talkie Lights of New York (1928),
Landis left Hollywood for a below-the-sonar career as an industrial film director
(and war-time creator of Government/Army Training films).

Here's a link to a Landis-directed X-rated gag reel
of bloopers (& non-simulated horse sex !) from his days at
Wilding Pictures, an "industrial" studio known to Keaton bugs
as the producer of Paradise for Buster (1952).

Neat! The best parts of films I'll otherwise never see.

Gives an indication of just how far down the ladder Jason Robards Sr had fallen.
