Keystone Kops Number 12

Love, Speed and Thrills (1915)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

I recently read Leonard Maltin's book on short subjects and there was an interesting theory shared by Mack Sennett. He was under the belief that you could make a very bad movie and as long as the film was fast enough no one would notice. That might have been true back in the day but in 2011 I was clearly able to see how bad this movie was and even at the fast pace. The film has Ambrose accidentally shooting Walrus so he takes him back to his house to help him recover. Walrus eventually goes after Ambrose's wife and before long the two are fighting and the Keystone Kops are called. This was the twelfth and final Keystone Kop short and I think I've seen around four and five and I'll admit that I haven't liked a single one. If you are a fan of the series then you might feel I'm too hard on this movie but if you're not a fan then I think you'll agree with me. The "direction" by Sennett is pretty rough to begin with but it really doesn't help that nothing here is funny. We get countless fights, stunts and fast-paced action but none of it ever equaled a laugh and more often than not the attempted humor comes across rather forced. The final few minutes of the film has a big chase going on with many obstacles but once again I simply didn't find it funny.
