Car-orientated slapstick short
3 June 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

TOUGH LUCK AND TIN LIZZIES is a simple silent slapstick short from director and star Larry Semon. He plays an incompetent who accidentally steals a car that doesn't belong to him and finds an inadvertently kidnapped woman along for the ride. This short feels a bit like a segment from a Laurel & Hardy movie and concentrates on building and sustaining momentum to keep it moving along. The slapstick is mildly amusing and the film offers viewers a glimpse of a typical comedy from the era.
