Toonerville’s Boozem Friends

Page

Toonerville’s Boozem Friends depicts a day in the life of Toonerville, featuring slapstick scenes in Bang’s Quick Service Restaurant, surreptitious drinking despite prohibition, and an evil villain trying to trade a mortgage for marriage to a beautiful young girl.

The 1920 comedy is one of a series of films based on the popular syndicated newspaper comic strip “The Toonerville Trolley” by Fontaine Fox. Many of the films took advantage of the then-current day issues of drinking and Prohibition.

Produced by the Betzwod Film Copmany and directed by Ira M. Lowry. Featuring Wilna Hervey, Dan Mason, Helen Gerould Rose, Robert Maximillian, Betty Bovee, Jules Bernard, and Fred O’Beck. Written by Fontaine Fox.
