Wildly funny and inventive comedy of desperation., 7 May 2000
Author: Ken (Silents) from USA

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!
