One of the Funnier and Cuter Biograph Comedies
24 November 2012 | by (Orlando, United States) – See all my reviews

The Sennett-Normand Biograph comedies from 1911-1912 don't have the zany-crazy nature of the 1912-1913 Keystone comedies. However, they generally have a quieter charm of their own.

Here it is nice to see Sennett playing a different character than his usual hillbilly lover. Sennett looks quite dashing as the big game hunter. He's quite comically cowardly when the real big game shows up. Mabel is so calm and natural with the bear that she appears like a goddess or other worldly creature. She acts as if she's doing the scene with a cat or dog.The only thing to match it is Harold Lloyd's work with a lion in his "Sin of Harold Diddlebach" (1947).

If you want to see a good representative biograph comedy from 1912, this is an excellent example.
