Movies, The (1925)

** (out of 4)

Lloyd Hamilton plays a country boy who goes to NYC and gets mixed up with a hot-head before landing a spot in the movies as a stand-in. This film was made a couple years after Arbuckle's infamous rape/murder case so he was working under his fake name of William Goodrich. This film also served as a comeback for star Hamilton who had also been blacklisted over a stabbing incident, which he wasn't involved with but it still ruined his career. Hamilton was a big silent star but today he just comes off as a mix between Chaplin and Harold Lloyd. He had a couple funny bits here but nothing that would make me go out and search for more of his film.
