In June of 1914 on Thursday the 11th, The Knockout premiered; early on in this 27 minute short (starring Roscoe ‘Fatty’ Arbuckle, produced by the Keystone Film Company and Mack Sennett, as well as directed by the comic genius and released by Mutual Film)  we see a sign that says “Town Hall” (later the boxing match will be held there) we see 4 movie posters, promoting 3 films, of the 3 films, only the Caught in a Cabaret poster, (at least in my research, if you have information, please contact me) remains in its original form.

Caught in a Cabaret (2 posters, 1 large to the left of the entrance to “Town Hall” and to the right of the entrance, a smaller poster), 1914, was directed by the deft Mabel Normand and produced by the Keystone Film Company and released by Mutual Film.
