  1. A Miner? Using his given name? Wow. I don’t know if that’s sad or good for him. Judging by the fact that he was in a low rent apartment, I’m guessing things were not going well for Elmo in 1930. Or maybe I’m wrong.

    No, I would agree with you Steve. I don’t know much about him but I wonder where he did mining in Hollywood?? — Allan

    It’s funny — I have a DVD of “Fractured Flickers,” and it features good ol’ Elmo as (chunky) Tarzan.
