Peeping Pete (1913)

*** (out of 4)

Pete (Mack Sennett) gets caught peeping at his neighbor's (Ford Sterling) wife through a hole in the fence so when the husband catches him there's a big chance throughout the town with guns blazing. Along the way the neighbor's wife (Roscoe 'Fatty' Arbuckle) gets involved as does a cop (Edgar Kennedy) and countless others. This Sennett-directed one-reeler lasts just around eight-minutes but there's not a quiet moment to be had anywhere in the picture. Sennett certainly knows how to keep the action moving at such a pace that you never really have time to say what you're watching isn't all that well made or written. There's really not too much that happens as the husband chases Pete from one location to the next and every once in a while we'll get a cutaway to the wife who is usually just falling down or tripping over things. What makes the film work are all the terrific actors here and it's Arbuckle who easily steals the film playing the wife. The site of him playing a wife that men want is funny enough but the actors comic timing is just so good that he can sell anything he does. Just check out the sequence where he slips, falls and tumbled over everything in the frame and see if you're not laughing at the end. Sterling also gets some great moments including some terrific facial work when he's behind Pete waiting to attack him. Fans of Keystone should enjoy this little gem.
