  1. Harry never failed a physical. I wonder if this photo was prior to an L.A. hanging straitjacket escape.

    1. Correct! This ran on April 4, 1923, the day of his suspended straitjacket escape from the Los Angeles Examiner bldg.

    2. Ah! Had to be. Harry always kept a good relationship with the police. They were needed for authenticity. According to Silverman HH had a pass that allowed him to cross police lines.
