Max's neigbour Schultz is breeding chicken, that are always after Max's flower seed, and Schultz bride is his rooster Brigham. Max's daughter loves Schultz's son, so they try to forget their battling, and decide to have a nice engagement party. Max gives his son $2 to buy a chicken, but he wants to keep the money and takes one of Schultz's chicken - Brigham. At the table he notices his mistake, informs his sister, who informs her fiancee. Only Max and Schultze don't notice and the evidence of Max's son's misdoings, the rooster's ring is on Schultze's plate. The two lovebirds try to inform Max who first doesn't understand, neither does Schultz, who notices them doing strange things behind his back. When Max realises, what is on his table, it is almost too late... Written by Stephan Eichenberg <eichenbe@fak-cbg.tu-muenchen.de>

Wildly funny and inventive comedy of desperation.
7 May 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Wildly funny and inventive comedy of desperation from the studio that gave us Our Gang, Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chase, Harold Lloyd and many other classic comedy film series. The hilarious attempts to retrieve the chicken leg from Schultz plate before he discovers the "1st Place" leg band degenerate into chaos and a game of football with the leg. One of the funniest movies you've never seen, this film survives only in one original print that is in less than mint condition. All other copies were made from that print, but its such a terrifically funny movie you forget the scratches and the few moments of less than perfect contrast. This film is what funny is all about!
