An out-of-town chicken arrives, only she's a labour agitator, Little Red Henski from Moscow, Russia, who comes courtesy of the I.W.W. Soon she has the hens striking for "shorter hours" and "smaller eggs". Alice and Julius need to fill an urgent egg order. They spot two roosters fighting. They organize a pugilistic event, and charge each hen one egg admission. Alice and Julius fill their order and drive away ... but the load slips off, breaking all the eggs. Written by David Steele

Alice's Egg Plant (1925)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Alice and Julius are running a very successful egg planet and their luck just got even better when an order of 5000 eggs come in. The only problem is that the chickens have gotten together and agreed to go on strike demanding shorter hours and smaller eggs. ALICE'S EGG PLANT was the only film in the series that had Anne Shirley playing the role of Alice. She filled in for this one film and it turns out that it's one of the best. To be fair and honest, she's certainly not the greatest thing in the film but she's certainly nice in the part. The best thing about the film is its story, which manages to pack in a lot of laughs and the entire thing just has a very creative feel to it. This includes the fact that the chickens go on strike during a very funny sequence. Another highlight happens when three of the eggs are stolen and Julius must battle a snake to get them back. Fans of this series will certainly love this and even if you're not familiar with the films you should enjoy it too.
