Loaded Legs, 1922

'Safety first' is the motto of Miss Mary Jayne of Keith's circuit.

Mary Jayne, seated in rocking chair with pistol strapped to her knee, claiming exemption from concealed weapon regulation by saying her thirty-two isn't a concealed weapon in these days of knee-length skirts.

The Keith Circuit was a chain of vaudeville theaters that eventually transitioned to motion pictures.
