One Of The Best Comedians In The History Of The Cinema

In "Max Et La Doctoresse" (1909) Herr Max loves secretly a young and natürlich!!, attractive frau doktor but he doesn't know quite how to approach her so he pretends to be a patient in order to be treated by her. After undergoing the usual exhaustive medical exam typical of the movies (She takes his pulse and gently touches his stomach) Herr Max achieves his innermost desire and frau doktor and patient fall in love. This results however in a serious side effect: marriage.

However, on their wedding night and before any joyful consummation, Frau Linder receives an urgent call from one of her sick patients. She rushes off leaving her spouse feverish with desire. But even worse, the same situation occurs a second time just a little later. Herr Max soon discovers that his original clever plan to court the pretty doktor is being copied by others: potential rivals swamp the doktor's office on the pretext of needing a physical. A frenzied Max takes drastic action and hurls them all out.

This funny one-reel programme was screened at the Schloss theatre during the last soirée, a wonderful night in which it was made obvious why Herr Max Linder was one of the best comedians in the history of the cinema and truly an inspiration for Herr Charles Chaplin.

And now, if you'll allow me, I must temporarily take my leave because this German Count has an appointment with the aristocratic family physician.
