This is a lost film, more's the pity
13 June 2015 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Famous for his wonderful, wavering voice, Ed Wynn tried his hand at silent film in this Chester Conklin comedy. How good is it? We may never know. Despite what other reviewers claim, this is a lost film and no copies are known to exist. It's a shame as it would be a valuable piece of movie history.

From the description in the AFI catalog, the plot involves Wynn as an amateur detective who is hired by jewel thief Conklin as the gang's patsy. It seems it's one of those "accidentally heroic" plots and it all ends up on the ice floes over Niagra Falls. Pretty standard stuff for comedy of the day but I am quite curious as to how Wynn came across without his famous voice.

Once again, the world may never know. Check those attics, film fans!
