With apologies to Bob Fells, this photo makes Arliss look like the most unattractive man since Neanderthal times. It literally makes him look like a cross between a chimpanzee and a feral pig.

He wasn't that bad-looking!

Mike said that he was looking for a photo that had "personality" so I proposed a few, among them was the one that graces the N'ville Masthead for September. The portrait was taken in conjunction with THE WORKING MAN (1933), which was a remake of $20 DOLLARS A WEEK. I rather like the photo and a close examination of my 8x10 inch original reveals Mr. A to have a distinct five o'clock shadow that puts him right in style with the contemporary male fashion of today. As for Mr. Roots' disapproval, I'm reminded of something Will Rogers told a reporter: "I don't care what you say about me, just spell my name right."

BTW, this year marks the 150th anniversary of Mr. A's birth so I made up this little video to mark the occasion:

Nice tribute on YT and great selection of colored stills.

Thanks for increasing our awareness of Arliss.
