Anita Loos entered Hollywood at a young age, writing screenplays and (later) intertitles. By most accounts, she always had a very young appearance. Advertisements frequently capitalized on this, but they also usually note something about her intelligence or her wit. This ad starts with all kinds of infantilization (and a crazy hat), then notes that she is one of the most brilliant writers of her age.
Here, Spence devotes an entire page to how he will not talk about himself. "The liver pill shows marked restraint and self-discipline during these spells of egotistical exuberance."
So, ya. This will be exciting to exactly one person in the world. I have dug through Film Daily for years looking for anything on Ralph Spence, I never thought I would find anything else. Three seconds of searching on a new online archive and this appears. Incredible. Spence was a "human insurance policy" because he took crappy movies, re-edited them, and then re-released them so the studios could make a profit. Typically he just added different words. He marketed himself as a "film doctor."
I am not at all sure how I got this. My best guess is that it comes from a 1920-ish version of The Passion Play (judging from some other images I have that look similar). I kept it because of how well the tone of the text matches the eyes of the character in the next frame. It is unclear here whether this is the character that is saying this or if this is the character that is going to die.
This is a bit like Benjamin's Arcades Project, but on a much smaller scale. Intertitles, subtitles, books with images, and other monstrous hybrids.
