A pleasant assemblage of silent comedy clips, but not at all definitive in its focus
31 December 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a pleasant, if a bit lack-luster short made up of clips from various Mack Sennett comedies. Oddly, though, the film NEVER mentions Charlie Chaplin--who began his career with Sennett and helped make the studio great. During his two year stint, Chaplin made dozens and dozens of shorts, but judging by this short film, you'd think he'd never worked there! Apart from that, this is a nice though shallow look at Sennett (a.k.a. "Keystone") comedies, with some very funny clips throughout. However, if you would like a better collection and homage to silent films, I recommend the Robert Youngson-produced features, such as THE GOLDEN AGE OF COMEDY or WHEN COMEDY WAS KING. They simply are more coherent and offer longer and better clips.
