This image is from the September, 1920 Photoplay. It illustrates her athletic tendencies and mentions that she had formed her own production company.

After I brought her home and sat with her for a bit, I went Christmas shopping. I drove to Tanforan, where I took this photo. I bought some kitten food and some gifts. I went on to Hillsdale, had lunch at Panda Express, and did more shopping. Then I drove over the hill to Half Moon Bay and did some more shopping at the pet goods store and Bay Books.
This ad appeared in the 25-June-1915 Variety. Someone must have tried to steal his act. The White Rats were a union for vaudeville performers.
"According to newspaper notices, I have scored one of the largest individual hits ever registered in England, not even barring the Zeppelins." Very tasteful.
This is the 2000th post in my blog.

The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company of Akron, Ohio has produced airships, mostly blimps but some Zeppelins, rigid airships. since 1911. Here is a typical military blimp. Goodyear has operated its own blimps for publicity since 1925. There are three in the current fleet. Goodyear is planning to switch to Zeppelin LTs next year.
The image is from the 1922 Aircraft Yearbook.
