One hell of a car fight!!!
2 September 2005 | by (Sutton-in-Ashfield_UK) – See all my reviews

I bought this video not knowing much about the contents, as I did most of my silent films. It is trial and error. Some are rubbish and a waste of time. 'Walking Back' though was different. It started as any other silent movie. Not much plot and the over-the-top acting which makes you feel uncomfortable. Namely the son showing his affection for his mother, way too much kissing. But then the action starts. I won't go into any detail but the highlight of the movie is the car fight. Two brand new, gleaming, sparkling, shiny 1920s cars are wrecked in a vicious 10 minute fight, a kind of Demolition Derby with just two cars (try doing 10 minutes with two Fords!!!). The stars are really getting thrown about like they wouldn't dare do nowadays and even the cameraman falls from his perch!. All comes good in the end though and I'm really glad to have this film in my collection. It's not widely available so you will have to search for it but it will be worth the effort!.
