This is a very enjoyable Will Rogers silent comedy short. It's really too bad, though, that it wasn't a sound film, as so much of Rogers' charm and wit depended on what he said, not what he did.
In this short, Rogers introduces and concludes the movie. And, then, he acts in different fake versions of highlights from famous movies--such as Douglas Fairbanks as ROBIN HOOD, among others. All the parodies were pretty funny--not side-splittingly funny but still good for a few laughs. The bull fighting scene from BLOOD AND SAND as well as a recreation of a KEYSTONE COPS short are also parodied quite well. Nothing earth shattering, but fun.
