Two films in one
24 October 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The film has now been shown at Pordenone Silent film Festival 2008 and program notes by Richard Koszarski establish that the film shown within the film is "The Smart Aleck" a "Chic" Sale comedy made under the direction of Al Christie the year before but never released, for unexplained reasons. Scriptwriter Arthur Hoerl and director La Cava then invented the hilarious new framing story where Sale plays all the parts involved in the showing of the film in a small town movie theater, including the projectionist (who prefers commenting upon the parts that he has decided not to show), the female piano player and the grumbling local film critic. Weird indeed, but also very funny.
