About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

World Premiere

Washington Post, July 4, 1920.

Poli's —“Keep To the Right.”

“Keep To the Right.” is the title of the five-reel photodrama in which Edith Taliaferro will be screened throughout the week at Poli's Theater as chief feature of a diversified bill. The picture, of which the Washington presentation marks the world premiere, is said to solve one of the most persistent problems of modern life. The nature of the denouement may be gleaned from the play's title.

Reissue title

Originally released December 1919 under the title "Who's Your Brother?"
