Storyline

Though only the second half survives, here's a synopsis of what's left: Stan is a Robin Hood-type character in a medieval walled town. He's chased by an army of knights, but both he and his pursuers ride music-hall half-horse costumes in lieu of real steads. He proceeds to fight, Fairbanks-like, dozens of swordsmen at once, and defeats his rival one-on-one, leaving him to marry the princess in a state ceremony. Written by WesternOne

In Days of Old
22 July 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

As of the writing of this review, only one reel of this comedy is known to exist, but it is in pretty good shape at the Library of Congress and a projectable print is in existence and was shown at Slapsticon 2010 -- for my taste, much more important than the Chaplin discovery of A THIEF CATCHER, since that was about ninety seconds of Charlie in a supporting role and this is ten minutes of Stan in the lead.

It's not the Stan Laurel you know from Laurel and Hardy. Instead, at this stage in his career, he's doing burlesques of popular movies like UNDER TWO FLAGS and DOCTOR JEKYLL AND MISTER HYDE. Here he's taking on Douglas Fairbanks' blockbuster production of ROBIN HOOD and the gags keep on coming one after another, machine-gun style. No money has been spared for this production and it's very funny on its own terms, not to mention seeing Stan at this stage of his career.

And keep an eye out. That first reel could turn up anywhere.
