This seems to be the first film in a short-lived Captain Barnacle series that Vitagraph started at the beginning of 1917. Young Bobby Connelly was one of the first star child actors and his character Sonny Boy links the two series he did for Vitagraph, the “Sonny Jim” series from 1914 to 1915 and the “Bobby” series in 1917.

Unites States Declares War on Germany 1917

SAN FRANCISCO, California the day World War I was declared / huge flag on Marketstreet / crowds / parade

A huge flag rolls out for the start of the big war.. It’s huge! Then a big military parade happens.. the big highlight is the marquee on the Strand with it’s “Good Luck Boys!” banner, the fact that “The Garden of Allah” is playing in SF for the first time, AND that lady in Statue Of Liberty gear right in center! Reccomended!
