So Walter Stull is not Walter Stahl, meaning that the Finn and Haddie comedies released by Jaxon featured Stahl not Plaid Jabbs Stull. Billy Ruge, who often worked in support of Stull at Vim, starred with Stahl in the Finn and Haddies. When Jaxon moved from Jacksonville up to Rhode Island to shoot the Pokes and Jabbs comedies they closed down the Sparkle comedies that starred Ruge. Out of work Ruge drifted to Vitagraph where he made a number of comedies with Walter Hall. Here is where it gets crazy.... Walter Hall IS Walter Stahl. Clear as mud yet?

Was George Jessel in the vessel with the pestle?
“I'm in favor of plagiarism. If we are to create a new Renaissance, the government should encourage plagiarism. When convinced that someone is a true plagiarist, we should immediately award them the Legion of Honor.” —Jean Renoir
