Storyline

Captain Bob White, an American aviator is sent on a dangerous mission to Germany to steal the enemy's plans for an expected drive. Bob impersonates a woman in order to entrap the Kaiser whose weakness for women is well known. Bob flirts with the Kaiser, Hindenburg, and the Crown Prince, and each one becomes jealous of the others. Bob lures the Kaiser to his downfall with an Oriental dance. Hindenburg tells the Kaiser's wife that her husband is visiting a woman in her chambers, and the results prove disastrous for all three men. Bob eventually gains the military secrets and the enemy is defeated in time. Written by Pamela Short

Sennett beats the Kaiser
10 September 2003 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

A funny and stylistically interesting feature from the Sennett studio directed by wunderkind Richard Jones. Although his comedies generally featured human-looking comics for Sennett and Roach, as opposed to the grotesques made popular at Keystone, in this one he combines the two styles: the Allies look and act like normal people, but the Germans are in the full grotesque makeup of the earlier films, acting with the exaggerated mannerisms one expects from the Sennett studio. The entire Sennett company is on view here and the jokes are crude, take advantage of the propaganda of the era -- there is a joke about German soldiers capturing a Belgian convent -- and funny.

If you don't know this style of comedy, you may be taken aback by it. If, however, you like this sort of thing -- and I do -- you will have a lot of fun.
