Chapter 2 notes the beginning of the film industry and the downfall of vaudeville, causing Langdon to move from stage to screen. In March 1923 at the Hillstreet Theatre, Langdon was “discovered,” and his career as a silent film comedian began. Much of the focus is on Langdon’s early contracts and films, including detailed descriptions of his performances. This chapter also touches on Langdon’s work with Frank Capra and the personal and professional conflicts that plagued Langdon’s life and career.
