How Max got into the movies...

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.
