Didn't Anyone Talk to Mack Sennett in His Four Years at Biograph?
17 January 2017 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Kate Toncray makes sauerkraut and goes out shopping. When David Morris gets home, he tries to make himself a sandwich, but the knife is dull, so he goes to get it sharpened while the other people in the building grow suspicious about the smell in this split-reel comedy from Biograph.

Clearly this was made by people who noted Sennett's success at Keystone after he left Biograph. Funny-looking cops with soft rubber truncheons! Men made up with ill-fitting bald wigs on which audiences can see the seams! Outsized gestures too big for the stage! That's what people wanted in comedy! Clearly no one at Biograph understood what Sennett was doing. Oh, well. It's only four minutes and you get to see Max Davidson when he was so young his beard was black.
