Excellent portrayal of an Imp
8 June 2001 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The (mis)adventures of a young boy constantly in trouble. Young Henry Peck goes through life looking for pranks that create trouble for other people and laughs for him. This is a movie played strictly for laughs. This is a comedy based on real life (after all, how many "imps" did you know growing up?) and those are always the best comedies as we can relate to what is happening on the screen.

With no talking, it was imperative in silent movies that actions speak louder than words. And, in young Henry's case, his facial expressions make the movie. The closeups on his face when he gets an idea shows very well his impish nature. You can just see the wheels turning.
