Ride 'Em into Greenpoint Brooklyn Cowboy!!

Moving Picture World, July 11, 1925:

"The first hundred children in wild west suits got passes."

"That's one of the stunts Herman Whitman, of Keith's Greenpoint Theatre, Brooklyn,    N. Y., used to launch the first episode of The Fighting Ranger. He was liberal in his count, because so many showed up, and it does not pay to  disappoint the kiddies."
