Enjoyable Max Davidson short
20 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Papa Gimplewart (Davidson) is an unlucky man – he has three ne'er do well grown children. They all are bone-lazy and none too bright. Papa is adamant that the boys get jobs; he gives the incompetent Abie a truck to operate a hauling business. Before getting to the street Abie destroys a shed and part of the house in a funny albeit destructive scene. Papa next goes to work on the other son, Junior, and goes with him in search of a job including that of a Charleston dancer. Coming upon a trolley accident, Papa tells Junior to sneak into the overturned trolley; soon Junior is pulled out of the trolley and taken off in an ambulance. The funniest part of the short is when two men come to the house and papa thinks they're investigators looking into the accident. Hiding one leg, Junior pretends that a wooden leg is his actual leg and that he is paralyzed. The case ends up in court and defending the trolley company is Aaron, Papa Gimplewart's daughter's beau. Papa had told Aaron that he could marry his daughter Rachel after he won his first case. The court scene is a hoot with Papa being found out in a number of lies. Max Davidson had such an expressive face and gestures. This short is better than many a comedy silent I have seen (and certainly funnier that many a sitcom episode).
