~Plot Synopsis~
In his first feature-length comedy, white-faced Larry Semon starred as a milquetoast who gets involved
with a gang of thieves. Through no fault of his own, Larry ends up in the home of his childhood rival
(Oliver Hardy), a fact that the lady of the house (Claire Adams) has a terrific time explaining. The "girl" of
the title is not a girl at all, but a man in drag used by the thieves to lure potential victims into their car to
be robbed. The Girl in the Limousine was adapted from a stage farce by Avery Hopwood and Wilson
Cullison. Semon, still wearing the white clown make-up and bib-overalls as in his previous 2-reeler for
Vitagraph, produced and co-directed the film, which was financed by producer I.E. Chadwick and
released on the First National exchanges. A major critical and box-office disappointment, The Girl in the
Limousine began Semon's swift decline, which ended in the comic's premature death from alcoholism
and pneumonia in 1928. Playing a childhood pal of Semon's but looking much younger, Oliver Hardy was
still a couple of years away from his historical partnership with Stan Laurel.
