Jailed and Bailed (1923) -


James Parrott landed in Hollywood thanks to the connections of his older brother Charlie, who made his fame as silent comedy great Charlie Chase. Variously billed as "Paul Parrott" and "Jimmy Parrott," James starred in dozens of silent shorts for Hal Roach, notably in a successful series opposite the cherubic Jobyna Ralston. Jailed and Bailed showcases the talent and chemistry of the performers before they went on to even greater success, James as one of Roach's top directors (he directed, among others, the Laurel and Hardy classic The Music Box) and Ralston as Harold Lloyd's costar in six features (including The Freshman).
