Hansom Cabman, The (1924)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Harry Langdon wakes up on his wedding day with a terrible hangover but what's worse is that there's a woman in his apartment claiming to be the woman he married the night before. All of this leads to trouble when his soon to be wife shows up with her mother. Of all the Langdon shorts I've seen so far this one here is clearly the best due to a nice story and a few small laughs. I'd be lying if I said I was laughing out loud but the film did keep me entertained throughout its running time. The story itself is built up very good as we have the drunken wedding to start with and then the film goes to a jail scene after Harry is arrested for beating his wife. Andy Clyde plays the wife to be's father and he has a few funny moments but sadly he's not in the film too long. Langdon himself also comes off very likable here, which is a first for me. As I've said, I heard his shorts grew better as time moved on and I hope that's the case here. While this film is far from a classic it was worth watching.
