Lloyd Hamilton Plays Football
24 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Lloyd Hamilton has a following among silent comedy buffs, but a misunderstood Buster Keaton he isn't. In this one, he has a Popeye Bluto competition with another taxi driver for a very pretty girl, and later, there's a football game. Will his continued BLAZING AWAY at making himself a silent comedy star result in at least some dates with the young pretty?

The movie is an excuse for a series of OK-ish gags, and rampant violation of the rules of football (and basic physics) for the sake of gags. Some of the gags are pretty funny, and the views of the American road, circa 1928, are priceless. So worth the time, even if the comic seems to have very little personality.
