Here’s a title that’s a mouthful, but it certainly does a fine job of summarizing the plot. Jack Farr would pick a famous person from history, drop him or her into the present and see how they’d fare. Not well it seems. Farr imbued the proceedings with a fine sense of screwball humor, a trademark style that should have served him better in the newspaper strip world. Yet he always seemed to be jumping from paper to paper, and in the 1920s ended up providing bulk lots of comic strips to the US Feature Service, a company that mostly dealt in buying up old stock from other syndicates. What the problem was for Jack I dunno. He always seemed to be one great idea away from making the bigtime.
