The Old Fashioned Way (1934)|
The Great McGonigle arrives by train on April 10, 1897 at the small town of Bellefontaine, Ohio, where he mistakenly assumes that a welcoming parade and marching band waiting for J. Weldon Potter, Grand Mogal of the High Chamber, Secret Order of the Veiled Knights of Matthius, was waiting for him and his troupe of vaudeville players. [00:12:00]
Later, McGonigle refers to another fraternal order when he greets Sherrif Prettywilly : "My old friend, Sherrif Prettywilly. How are all the Elks over in New Philadelphia?" to which Prettywilly replies :"Most of them are waiting for the money you owe them." [00:43:00]
