ing love to a girl who thinks he's a crook. Busy making rum runners run,
and jamming a thousand laughs into six reels of the choicest of screen enter
tainment. You'll see more funny situations than in any comedy Johnny ever
made. First he's an inventor, dabbling in ink. Then he's Chief Mirth Mate
on the S. S. Comedy. Then he's speeding beyond the three-mile limit, cutting
up with the Coast Guard cutters. Come along for the ride of your life!

"People with RED HAIR have pep, push and personality, that captivating
"IT" complex in its most virulent form." What do you think? There's
more where "IT" came from and something new too. Clara Bow knows her
American Flapper and she has Red Hair. The heart of the Gold-Digger
isn't made of gold after all, and Why! Here She Is Again! The "IT" girl w
ith Red Hair personality, stepping high, wide, and handsome! You'll shriek
with glee when you see her chased by every man in the neighborhood and
makes them like it! Then her ideal a red head ,too! Come see the battle
of the Red Heads! 1
