Hanging Around
30 October 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

It's a red letter day when one of Max Linder's lost films shows up, and this is one for me. This one turned up in the Netherland archives and while Max has the leading role, so to speak, it's not about him.

It starts as a typical Linder comedy in his man-about town mode. He gets rejected by the girl, so he lays the bouquet he has gotten for her on the stairs, sheds a tear and then .... well, he goes into the woods and hangs himself. Not what he usually does.

Nor is this the sort of hanging they aimed for when they actually hanged people, in which the idea was to make the drop and stop break the victim's neck, but the slow, strangling sort of hanging in which the victim expires slowly, twitching, A comedy? Yes indeed, because Max is discovered while there's still plenty of time to save him. It's the reactions of the people who find him that make this a comedy and a very funny one. You should see any Max Linder movie you can find, but you should see this one especially.
