Don't Eat the Hash
13 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

It's still very early days for Larry Semon with this chaos-in-a-cheap-restaurant comedy. It's clearly modeled on what was going on at Keystone. Hughie Mack is doing Arbuckle, Jimmy Aubrey is wearing a Ford Sterling look and his angry persona, and I think I see an Al St. John type. They even do the broom slapping routine. Except for a sequence in which a string of sausages is animated, it all looks like the first half of Arbuckle's much better THE WAITER'S BALL.

Still, there are some differences. The photography is a little more sophisticated than was usual at Keystone, although the editing is nowhere near as sophisticated... except that Arbuckle was being very innovative with his camera-work. As a result this is an okay comedy, but little more.
