The Magic Flute (1906) was actually a French Pathé Brothers film, and not produced by Vitagraph. Illegal duping of films was rampant at this time because copyright laws were not very strong for films. There is not a known film entitled The Adventures of a Detective, but films were shown with many different titles, especially if they were duped, during this era.
Comedienne Toby Claude did make a few character appearances in films by Cecil B. DeMille and William deMille in the 1920s.
Gardner Crane did make some films with Thanhouser in 1914. Vira Rial made at least one film appearance in an Imp (Universal) film in 1915.
Kingsley Benedict was a Universal contract player from 1915-1919. He also wrote and produced films there. He made a few character appearances in the 1920s. Harry Keenan made many film appearances at various studios between 1912 and 1916.
