Great sight gags abound in this clever silent comedy, 27 November 2008
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

As I was about to write this review, I just realized that perhaps no one will ever read it. After all, LIZZIES is not easily available and few have heard about silent comedian Billy Bevan. This is probably about the sixth film of Bevan's I have seen and although he made gobs of films, there just aren't that many out there.

This film isn't deep or sophisticated and that isn't a problem. Instead, it abounds with wonderful sight gags and stunts. My favorite appears at the beginning, as you see Billy riding along at a very brisk pace in a bed-mobile (called a "Snoozenburg"). Additionally, the film really finished well--with yet another crazy stunt.

The only minor quibble is the pickax scene. This is because I have seen variations on this scene in many movies, so it wasn't as original or exciting as the rest of the film.
