Hodgepodge of comedy films
14 January 2017 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

The fact that this film comes from the Fancey company should tell you everything.Not only do you get scenes from silent films but from sound shorts featuring Buster Keaton,Bing Crosby and Danny Kate which are all treated as if they were silent.It has a really awful Mickey mousing music score,lots of Pomona,and a really corny commentary spoken by the king of grappling commentaries Kent Walton.The problem is that if you like silent comedy this film will be a rather painful experience.The best of these type of films were produced by Robert Young son.Contemporaneous with this film Chaplin and Lloyd were rereleasing to the cinemas their silent classics with musical tracks that suited the scene.
