Now I Smack My Head I've taken too many things seriously, for example: that there is inherent seriousness in everything, if we can just locate it, it being our duty to try. Now I smack my head and cry _How could I have been so stupid-- the rain is only the rain, my boy._ But then I am coming out of the library, late, after watching Laurel and Hardy in Sons of the Desert, and already I can't stop thinking of Oliver Hardy's face, the four thousand expressions, from horror to smirkey, that pass over it as he waits for his wife to let him have it, and rain is dripping from the aged ginkgo dumbly springing its leaves again, there is the smell of pizza dough, a wet dog crosses the street, and I can't do anything for about ten seconds but stand there with my heart pounding wildly, seriously in love with it all. --Charlie Smith

The photo shows a 23 year old Oliver Hardy (from the famous comedy team of Laurel and Hardy) in Ithaca in 1915 co-starring in “The New Adventures of J. Rufus Wallingford”. In the photo, Oliver Hardy is on the steps of the train. The series of 14 two-reel episodes were filmed in Ithaca by Wharton Studios at Renwick Park (Now Stewart Park). Oliver Hardy appeared in four of the episodes. In the fall of 1915, Oliver Hardy also made a film called the “Lottery Man” for Wharton Studios. The film is described as "a raucous romantic comedy about the captain of the Cornell football team who takes a summer job as a newspaper reporter at the Ithaca Journal to help support his mother." In the film, there are a number of Ithaca landmarks like; The Ithaca Journal Building, Schoellkopf Field, Stewart Park, the Chi Psi Lodge, the West End Depot (now the Greyhound bus station) and a set built at the southeast corner of State and Meadow streets. Local police and a judge appear as themselves and Cornell banners and t ...
