There's a great Silent film directed by Hal Roach and starring Harold Lloyd which is based on the song "He'd have to get under, get out and get under" which is well worth watching - some of the Car stunts are wonderful- and ALL are performed by Harold Lloyd himself , losing a bag off the back of his Model T he lets the car drive on runs back gets the bag and catches up with the car and drives on ! how did they do it ? - and that's only ONE Trick

See it here :

and here's a still from the film showing a Grand Victrola (I can't find it in the film so it's probably a publicity shot)

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
