Good one from Linder
1 February 2012 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

Quite a cute comedy from Max Linder, who was by now firmly established as France's top film showman. He's in familiar guise here as a down-on-his luck playboy whose joyful plans to spend a night on the town with his mate are scuppered by the fact that neither has a penny (or franc) to their name. Max's goes to his father for a hand-out, but is angrily shown the door. Later, his father receives an invitation to a ball, but on the way there he and his wife are robbed at gunpoint. The thief manages to take only some of the coins from the stolen purse before a handy policeman gives chase and recovers the purse while allowing the robber to flee. There's a neat little twist at the end of the film, which is quite a pleasing little entry in Max Linder's canon.
