little seen comedy from an under-appreciated silent clown
24 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If the name Raymond Griffith is familiar today only to historians and silent comedy completists, blame the fact that his reputation rests entirely on two surviving but rarely shown features: 'Paths To Paradise' (1925) and 'Hands Up!' (1926). Neither comedy can match the sublime heights of invention achieved by Keaton, Chaplin or Lloyd (or, in his brief prime, Harry Langdon), but Griffith was an engaging talent who, given time, could have developed into a master craftsman. 'Paths to Paradise' finds him in a fairly typical role, playing a dapper con artist in a high society cat-and-mouse jewel theft caper, matching wits with attractive rival/partner Betty Compson.
