How Baxter Butted In

Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1925. Vintage double weight studio still photograph from the 1925 silent film.

Bumbling newspaper clerk Henry Baxter is helplessly in love with a coworker in this silent-era comedy. The subject of his longing barely acknowledges his existence. His unrequited love coupled with his manager's devious daily taunts makes work tortuous for the poor clerk. He begins to day dream about a better life and a less cowardly self. Footage from William Beaudine's 1925 film is believed to be lost. In the still, we see a wide shot of the newspaper office in which Baxter works.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus with pin holes, toning overall, and two holograph pencil annotations to the verso.
