Roach Tries a Touch of Sennett
13 October 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

With Hampton del Ruth in charge of this Arthur Stone comedy, it's little surprise that it seems more like a Sennett comedy than a Roach comedy. In fact, the "mechanical man" plot was used several times by Sennett: 1917's "A Clever Dummy" with Ben Turpin springs to mind. The second half has him running a pawn shop and I don't have to tell you what that sounds like.

Stone seems more like a precursor of Harry Langdon, with his childlike attitude, than a more typical Roach character, grounded at least partially in the real world. Perhaps this was a style of comedy that Del Ruth hoped to foster, because most of the people that Stone encounters and annoys -- which are the two same thing -- quickly grow impatient with him.

There are a couple of faces that will make this interesting for the folks who like to spot the stars before anyone knew who they were. Olive Borden shows up to run a scam, and Fay Wray can be spotted in a taxi. However this short, while never less than watchable, is not as good as one would wish. Particularly Hal Roach.
