Weaker Lloyd's Silent Feature Still Enjoyable, 19 October 2000
Author: gelatoflo from Milan, Italy

DOCTOR JACK is one of Lloyd's weaker silent features, yet it's still quite funny. It does not have a tight structure, and focuses more on physical slapstick(which Lloyd is brilliant ), mixed with sentimental tales of how Dr. Jack `cures' patients with common sense and fun. This gives the film a curious mood inconsistency, maybe because melodrama and farce just don't melt together. However we get to see Lloyd performing some elegant acrobatic skills when he has to beat himself to create thrills for Mildred. The gag of the rug and the dog is very funny, too. Unfortunately, like many films at that time, this film contains some few inappropriate, slightly racist gags.
