Well Timed Farce
23 October 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A year after they had a hit with the social comedy SKINNER'S DRESS SUIT, director Seiter and actor Reginald Denny teamed up again in this sharply-turned farce. reminiscent of the sort that Clarence Badger was doing with Raymond Griffith over at Paramount.

There are the usual complications that lead to the situations in this farce: an adventuress -- Gertrude Astor -- with incriminating letters, a young couple in love -- that's Denny and Gertrude Olmstead -- and a crook pretending to be Reginald Denny's character. The timing is brisk, the situations comical, the pratfalls well taken and if dialogue instead of titles might sharpen it a tad, the silent version we have is quite funny without them.
