Excellent Silent
30 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story revolves around an old man who feels alone in the world aside from the gang who keeps him company and his old horse. He runs a horse and buggy business, but he has new competition: an auto taxi. The gang helps him to maintain his job by sabotaging the other man's.

This is a very funny film overall. Wheezer namely is incredible. He constantly asks the older children what to do, "Me wanna do something!" They brush him off by telling him to sit on an egg, to soak his head, and to roll a peanut. He does so reluctantly, happy to be doing something. Wheezer is a tiny boy in this short, but he has a big personality that really aids the film.

Old Grey Hoss also employs some advanced forms of film making including slow motion and animation.
