The Wisconsin State Journal – May 1, 1932
Harry must have been up to some shenanigans the night of his Birthday… who knew he’s been in the slammer these past 2 nights. It’s a good thing Marceline Day is around to break him out.
A chapter borrowed from Lame Brains & Lunatics: The Good, The Bad, and The Forgotten of Silent Comedy by Steve Massa Laurel and Harry Harry Langdon was the silent comedy comet that shot across the motion picture skies in the mid-1920s. Although his trajectory was brief and he crashed before the end of the silent era,…
“Who wants to go out and paint the town red with me in celebration of my Birthday!?!”
“Who hired this band for my Birthday party? What a racket!”

It just so happens that Father’s Day falls on the same day as Harry’s birthday this year. To celebrate both, here’s an image of Harry and his son, Harry, Jr., while visiting a nursery in Australia in 1936.
“I’m late for my birthday party, can I hitch a ride?”
Happy 130th Birthday, Harry!
What’s that? Tomorrow’s my birthday? Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!
