A short packed with more stars and gags than most features of its day, this film delivered a gaggle of guffaws!
I feel so luck to have caught this rare film at CINEFEST the annual early & rare film festival in Syracuse, NY - March 2003. More film buffs should support these festivals and share their discoveries on the IMDB so other film fans can track these old titles down. THE HOLLYWOOD KID (1924, Sennett, D: Roy Del Ruth) A short packed with more stars and gags than most features of its day, this film delivered a gaggle of guffaws! With appearances by Mack Sennett, Andy Clyde, Vernon Dent, Ben Turpin, Marie Prevost, Billy Bevan, Charlie Murray, a dozen bathing beauties and a toothless lion! The most fun in this comedy was seeing all of the behind the scenes shots of the studio as it really was and all as part of the frenetic plot.
