About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Keep to the Right: 1920

Washington, D.C. July 1920. "Poli's Theater, front." Now playing: Edith Taliaferro in "Keep to the Right," a five-reel silent melodrama about a Jewish girl's search for love -- a film that, in the words of the Washington Post, "is said to solve one of the persistent problems of modern life."

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?"
