What Took Them So Long?
18 April 2015 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Chester Conklin and two stooges visit the explosive powder factory, where they are testing a new gun, to ogle the women and seize the armaments for nefarious purposes. Of course the Keystone Kops get involved in this one.

A Keystone come set in a high explosive factory. The company had been in business since 1912. What had taken them so long to come up with this one? Had Sennett said the idea was too on the nose? Were they caught for an advertising slogan for the Boom Powder Company (how about "When you think Mass Destruction, think Boom!"?)? Were they holding this idea back until they ran out of star power and decided that Chaplin's leaving was enough to pull this one out o the trunk?

Whatever the reason, this is at the same time a great Keystone comedy and so utterly typical of the studio's product that you can use it as the measure of all things Keystone.
