Nothing brilliant nor objectionable...just a typical sort of Keystone comedy
21 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When I think of Keystone Studios, I think of slapstick. In the 1910s, this studio run by Mack Sennett specialized in the sort of rough and tumble low-brow humor that the public loved. The films tended to have lots of physical laughs--with folks getting bonked on the head, kicked in the butt and other such diversions as opposed to plot. In this sense, "Her Fame and Shame" is a somewhat typical Sennett film-- filled with pratfalls and bonking but slightly more plot than usual...slightly.

Louise Fazenda stars as a girl whose father runs a crappy restaurant. Into this dump arrives a traveling company of entertainers who are deadbeats. Instead of paying for their god- awful meal, the leader of this group tries to skip out. When Louise confronts him, she foolishly pays HIM to take a 50% share in the troop. Her father is NOT thrilled and goes to the show to collect his money.

Overall, this is a modestly entertaining little film. None of the humor is particularly good nor bad--making it more of a time-passer than anything else.
