The Head Waiter

Thanks to the cooperation of the Filmoteca Espanola and the Eye Institute Netherlands, the Library of Congress - Packard Campus for Audio Visual Preservation will be restoring the THE HEAD WAITER which stars Larry Semon and Babe Hardy.  Released in December 1919 the film is only Babe's second appearance with Semon.  In one of those cases where things work out right it happened that the folks in Madrid had reel one while the people in Amsterdam held reel two.  Hopefully just the first in a series of such cooperative projects.
