He's Sitting on the Well....
3 October 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a decent but not exceptional Keystone comedy from the era. Young lovers Roscoe Arbuckle and Mabel Normand fail to gain her father's approval because Roscoe keeps hitting him with sling shot and bricks and competing wooer Al St. John falls into the well.

You're expecting someone to fall in the well. It is a Keystone comedy and Mabel spends a lot of time sitting on it first, but it takes about a third of this one-reel movie before Al goes in. Then it's a call to the rural police and a horse cart chase to the preacher's before all ends well.

Roscoe and Mabel play their scenes with a great deal of charm. This was why they remained Sennett's top couple for a couple of years, before they left for greener pastures. However, while decent, it was done much better many times.
