"When the Five O'Clock Whistle Blows in Hollywood" is attached; it appeared in VANITY FAIR eight years after Hollywood was declared the film capital of the world.

This single page cartoon was created by one of the great American caricaturists of the Twenties: Ralph Barton, and all the kingpins of the young empire are depicted (among others): Douglas Fairbanks, Marry Pickford, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd, Bebe Daniels, Bill Hart, Wallace Reed, Gloria Swanson, Nazimova, Charlie Chaplin, Jackie Coogan, Fatty Arbuckle and the writer Rupert Hughes.
Lording above them all, and represented simply by jodhpurs and riding boots, stands the founder of the feast - Cecil B. DeMille (and his brother).

Wishing to add a bit bit of local color, Barton also included in the mix an odd Hollywood eccentric known as "Peter the Hermit".
