A silent classic -- with sound
12 July 2004 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

In 1935, somebody came up with a brilliant idea: make a talking short that would epitomize the slapstick comedies of the silent era. Silent comics, pushed into obscurity by the advent of talkies, were readily available.

Never mind about the plot; it only exists as a framework on which to hang new renditions of classic silent gags. The finale, of course, is a massive pie fight in the hotel ballroom while the Keystone Kops rush to quell the riot. Segments of the pie fight are frequently used as stock footage; it's likely that everyone has seen portions of it at one time or another.

Altogether, a nostalgic short that captures the flavor of the silent era. Good fun.
