Unbelievably frenetic--gags come so rapidly you barely have time to breath!
19 November 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very funny silent comedy by the forgotten comic, Billy Bevan. While I have seen hundreds or more old time comedies, this one stands out from the crowd because of its amazingly frenetic pace. Once one amazing sight gag occurs, another appears before you know it. Plus, some of the gags are so elaborate you really have to hand it to the folks who made this film. My favorite involved the periscope on the beach, but there were just so many wonderful scenes it's hard to remember them all.

Billy is a bit of a masher. He meets a lady on the beach and immediately gives her an expensive gift (some pearls). The problems are that she has her eyes set on the handsome lifeguard and the collection agents either want Billy to pay for this necklace or return it. Well, she naturally doesn't want to give up the pearls, so Billy decides to break in to her house to steal them (and a few other items while he's at it). This results in a very funny chase scene between what appears to be hundreds of policemen and Billy and is highly reminiscent of the Keaton film, COPS (which actually came out a year AFTER Bevan's film).

Terrific gags, lots of laughs and lots of originality. Even though Billy Bevan isn't well known today like Chaplin, Keaton or Lloyd, this one ranks up with their best. See it and have a good time.
