A gathering of filmland luminaries of the silent era at Joseph Schenck's home in 1925, honouring Rudolph Valentino having signed on with United Artists:

Clockwise from left: William S. Hart, Norma Talmadge, Hiram Abrams, Douglas Fairbanks, Peg Talmadge, Allan Forrest, James Hood MacFarland, Buster Keaton, Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, Charlotte Pickford (Mary's mother), Joe Schenck, Natacha Rambova, Sydney Chaplin, Rudolph Valentino, Constance Talmadge, John Considine, Lottie Pickford, and Arthur Kelly.

 

Of all these many giant stars of the silent cinema pictured here, only Chaplin would have a career that would continue to thrive with the arrival of talkies two years later.

From the Wikipedia entry for Carleton Young ("This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."):

 

>Mr. Young had a few interests beyond acting, forming the Los Angeles Smog Corp. to manufacture cans of "Genuine Los Angeles Smog", which reportedly were sold in the "Fun Shop" at Farmers Market. Hal Tamblin was listed as a vice president of the corporation, according to a 1962 item in The Times, and Art Ryon, author of The Times' "Ham on Ryon" column, claimed to be an executive of the whimsical outfit. Salesman Stan Goodman of Baldwinsville, NY, a longtime friend of Mr. Young and his wife Noel, came up with the idea to sell the city's notoriously polluted air so tourists could take an authentic "slice" of Hollywood back home.
