Wits and Fits

Released July 9, 1917, Wits and Fits is a one-reel Black Diamond Comedy filmed and produced by the United States Motion Picture Corporation (USMPC) in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The film was distributed by Paramount Pictures.

An article about Paramount’s July 1917 releases that appeared in the July 21, 1917 issue of The Moving Picture World says: “Wit and Fits is one of the cleverest Black Diamond comedies that has ever been issued by Paramount. It is filled with exceptionally clever trick scenes which make it particularly attractive as one of the releases for the week of July 9.”
