excellent silent comedy
7 August 2001 | by (aurora, in) – See all my reviews

my folks had this as a 16mm 1-reel excerpt titled "oily rich". they used to show it on a bedsheet long before I was born.I still have the reel and would sure like to know if it was ever put on videotape.the celluloid is very old and I don't think it would survive transfer.I saw it as a youngster and the reel was old then. it was hilarious.
