Photo by Lyman Pollard of Hollywood. Italian-born director Banks (1897-1950) appeared in his first film in 1916, two years after emigrating to the United States. Two of his first films were directed by Mack Sennett, and he appeared in numerous comedy shorts during the 1920s. Probably the most famous of his comedies is 1927's Play Safe, with a famous runaway train sequence that was edited into its own two-reeler called Chasing Choo-Choos. Banks also became a director with 1924's Hot Sands and directed one of Laurel and Hardy's movies, 1941's Great Guns. In all, Banks appeared in almost 90 movies between 1916 and 1945 and directed almost 40 movies between 1934 and 1941. Lightly toned, cracked and bowed. Developing errors near bottom right corner. Lightly worn corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
