A Clean Sweep (1918)

Moving Picture Weekly ad for A CLEAN SWEEP (1918) with Charlie of the Orient

Rip Roaring

"A Clean Sweep"
featuring CHARLIE of the Orient
the only Chinese Comedian in Pictures.

Charlie of the Orient
in this rip snortin' L-KO -- "A CLEAN SWEEP" -- shows a brand of "Chinese comedy" that's entirely new in this country. Safe to say that Charlie of the Orient introduces for the first time to American screens a line of oriental laughs that have never been seen before. Charlie is a mighty good bet for your advertising, for there has not appeared to date a real Chinese comedian, and you can make "meat" of Charlie's appearance in your house in this L-KO. Book this and all forthcoming L-KO'S, also the past releases. They are all laugh getters, and you can't show too many comedies now in war times. The people want them all.
