When Dan sets the ladder beneath Helen's window, it falls a couple of feet short; standing on the top rung would bring Dan chest-high to the window sill. Filmed from inside the room, Dan is able to climb all the way into the window. See more »

Dynamite Dan (1924)

** (out of 4)

Dan (Kenneth MacDonald) knocks out the foreman (Boris Karloff) at his workplace so the foreman accuses him of stealing money from the company safe. Dan takes off to visit his girlfriend when they're attacked by a man who Dan eventually knocks out with a single punch. A boxing manager see this and signs him up. This is an extremely dull silent that seems to run way too long even at 61-minutes. MacDonald is rather bland as the hero and Diana Alden isn't any more interesting as his lover. Karloff is only in a few scenes but it was rather funny seeing him look so young.
