Return With Us To The Thrilling Days Of Yesteryear
8 August 2000 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

A Warner Brothers Short Subject.

Leering villains. Damsels in distress. Frantic chases. Wacky slapstick humor. All this & more, as we fondly remember so many HAPPY TIMES AND JOLLY MOMENTS from the days of Silent Cinema.

This nostalgic little film is a look at many crazy highlights from the Mack Sennett Studios' heyday. Ben Turpin, James Finlayson, and other stars of the past are recollected in some of their funniest film clips. We get to watch a Mack Sennett Bathing Beauty talent contest. We're taken to a splendiferous custard pie throwing melee with Roscoe `Fatty' Arbuckle. Finally, after pratfalls, violence & assorted mayhem, we get to ride along with the Keystone Kops on a wild & wonderful road chase.
