Trivia

The 'famous' pitcher's name "Matty Christheson" is clearly a take-off on the great New-York Giant pitcher Christy Mathewson (whose nickname was Matty). Despite the intertitle, it's a fictional name. See more »

Second Part is Better

Hearts and Diamonds Part 2 (1914)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

John Bunny is a forgotten name in silent comedy and was the first real star of the genre. He also served as a major influence on W.C. Fields. Most of his films are now lost but this one here is available on the Kino set "Reel Baseball". I'm splitting these up into two films since that's how they were originally released. In the first film Bunny notices that a rich woman will be attending a ballgame so he goes there to try and win her heart. He learns that she's only interested in ballplayers so in the second film Bunny puts a team together for an exhibition against a real team including Matty Christheson. The second part of the film is certainly the best as we get to see some action on the ball field but this is somewhat ruined by a subplot dealing with a psychotic baseball player who escapes from a hospital. The total film runs 35-minutes and the first half drags in quite a few spots but it was nice finally being able to see Bunny.
