Storyline

Pioneering comedy legend Max Linder wrote, produced, directed and starred in Seven Years Bad Luck. Hilarious misadventures begin when Max' butler, chasing a maid, breaks an expensive full-length mirror. The butler persuades the cook, who somewhat resembles Max, to stand behind the frame and be Max's reflection. This gag, developed by Max, has become a classic of film and even television borrowed by everyone from the Marx Brothers to Abbott and Costello to Red Skeleton. Written by Anonymous

Enough accolades cannot be bestowed on Max Linder!
16 May 1999 | by (NY/NJ) – See all my reviews

I've just seen the laserdisc "POP GOES THE CORK" (mis-titled "Pop Goes The Comic" on the jacket and label.) It would appear to be the same exact film compilation as the above. It is a masterful hour and half of some of the cleverest gags ever - both in conception and execution. Max Linder is one of the true unsung heroes and pioneers of classic comedy and everyone from Chaplin to Benigni owes him a great debt. How sad that this wonderful comic genius suffered such depression resulting in his and his wife's suicide. Luckily his daughter put together this loving encapsulation of some of his last works! Do yourself a favor and discover the brilliant artist MAX LINDER!
