Storyline

Max Linder's behavior when he applied for a job as a Pathé Frères moving picture actor, was such a good joke on him that it was decided to make a film of the event, and accordingly. Max was called upon to play the lead. He was serious for once in his life, when he offered his services, and to see Max serious is really amusing. The first film for which he posed was '"Mr. Henpeck," and the rough deal he received, caused Max to forget that he was acting, and he turned suddenly upon one of his co-workers, whose duty it was to abuse him, and a rough and tumble fight ensued. The belligerents could not be parted until a stream of water was turned on them, and as soon as he could speak through anger and water, Max resigned, but reconsidered his decision later on, as his many admirers well know.

How Max got into the movies...
1 February 2012 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

This Max Linder short comedy isn't one of his best, but it does bear the distinction of a rare example of pioneering French movie makers in its cast. The film appears to comically recreate Linder's entry into the world of movie-making. He appears at a studio where he is shown from one office to the next and undergoes an audition. A week later he receives a summons from the studio to appear in his first film, a comedy in which he is thrown from an apartment window by a couple of women who then proceed to throw various pieces of furniture - including a table and wardrobe - on top of him. Directors Georges Monca and Lucien Nonguet, as well as studio boss Charles Pathe, all make appearances as themselves, although exactly who is who is anybody's guess. Not particularly funny, the film nevertheless has some value as an insight into the early years of movie-making.
