Bellhop Number 7, the Irish Kitty, and the Dead Banker
In 1922, while the Sells Floto Circus was in California, one of the most popular circus acts was the Flying Johnsons, flying trapeze acrobats Frank and Ada Johnson, and another acrobat named Giovanni. Unfortunately, Ada developed severe health problems and the act was fired from the circus. Rumor is that Ada was having an affair with Giovanni, and her husband found out, causing Ada much distress.
Frank divorced Ada, and in an attempt to earn some money, Frank Johnson contacted his friend Ralph Ince, a writer, director and actor in silent movies being made in Hollywood. There was no work for Frank Johnson, but his little boy Frankie found work, acting with the name Frankie Darro. From the age of seven, Frankie Darro became the bread winner for himself and his father. He began acting in silent movies, and never missed a beat when talkies began, finally ending his career as a regular on the Red Skelton television show, and bit part appearances in a couple of movies.
In this adventure, 22-year-old Frankie Darro is Buzzy O’Brien, a good Irish boy who hops bells in a hotel. His father was a cop before he died, and he lives with his Irish Mother. Buzzy has a bit of his father’s passion for solving crimes, but he is always getting in trouble with the cops. It’s a good thing that he has a large dose of Irish Luck on his side! Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
