Description by OLDIES.com:

Silent star Snub Pollard took his surname from "Pollard's Lilliputian Opera Company," the famous Australian vaudeville act he toured with, which featured children and actors of diminutive stature. With his bizarre trademark mustache, he rose to fame in the silent era, co-starring with Harold Lloyd in Hal Roach's Lonesome Luke comedies, a series which ran for a total of 86 films. He briefly re-emerged in the sound era, appearing as Tex Ritter's sidekick Pee-Wee and in supporting roles in Laurel and Hardy films. Snub continued to work steadily, usually unbilled as a bit player, for the rest of his life, appearing in Miracle On 34th Street (1947), Singin' In The Rain (1952) and Inherit The Wind (1960). Bobby Vernon was a popular leading man and comedian of the silents, who rose to fame starring opposite Gloria Swanson in a series of comic shorts. With the advent of sound he became a writer and supervisor at Paramount where he worked with W.C. Fields and Bing Crosby.

NO KIDDING (1928): Snub and his pal plan to win $1,000 in a baby contest. Starring Snub Pollard, Marvin Loback, Billy Barty.
