    Horse Shoes (Pathe', 1927). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Little is remembered about the star of this short, Monty Banks, but would you believe that he was awarded a special Oscar in 1937 as " a discoverer of stars and his special contribution to the comedy technique of the screen." Banks was one of the founders of Keystone Production Company in 1912 which had Mabel Normand, Fatty Arbuckle and Charlie Chaplin in its roster within the first years. In 1915 Banks with D.W. Griffith and Thomas Ince formed Triangle Films, where he began stars like Gloria Swanson and Bobby Vernon.In 1917 be began Mack Sennett Comedies and later Pathe' through which this short was released. He directed and produced and his accomplishments read like a who's who of early Hollywood. By the way, this short was directed by Clyde Bruckman who is best remembered as Buster Keaton's gagman. Very Fine+/Rolled.
