This is a remake of a Chaplin film that W.C. Fields starred in circa 1927
According to what the current review says, this "Lost Film" apparently has been found in the reviewer's attic. If so, I shall add this title,in spite of not having seen it, to a future e-mail to Universal's website for a future volume of the "W.C. Fields Comedy Collection" 5-DVD box-set series. Although the reviewer at hand didn't enjoy this too much, it is vital, since it has been lost for over 80 years. It is nice to know that a distribution print has been discovered, thus making it a possible candidate for future DVD release to be seen by the general public. If this is released, it should be digitally cleaned up & include a newly recorded piano soundtrack utitlizing the original piano rolls (if THEY survived). Thanks for proving the existence of this film!
