Knockdown humour if you like that sort of thing, 11 September 2006
Author: Igenlode Wordsmith from England

Interesting as an example of Lloyd's early "Lonesome Luke" output, although I actually found he reminded me far more of Al St. John than Charlie Chaplin. Intriguing also as an illustration of contemporary cinema-going, at least at the bottom end of the spectrum -- allowing for comic licence.

However, the film itself is nothing very special; the gags are mainly of the falling-over and zany fighting variety which don't really appeal to me at all. (I did enjoy the accompanist frantically tuning his instrument in the middle of the performance... especially as the real-life accompanist happened to be engaged in some fairly frenetic piano-playing at that moment!)
