I love silent films...especially silent comedies. However, after seeing "Call for Mr. Caveman" I was left less than enthusiastic. You know right away it's not a top-tier film, as it's star is Snub Pollard...a competent enough comic but usually more of a supporting actor. The other guy isn't identified and perhaps it's James 'Paul' Parrott....but this is only a guess.

For the most part, the film consists of a lot of actors wearing skins, carrying clubs and sporting crazy wigs and beards (except for the two pipsqueak leading men who lack the hair props). Much of the film has cavemen bashing cavewomen over the head and that along with the very anachronistic intertitle cards are the only laughs...small as they are. The bottom line is that all this adds up to not a lot in the humor department. Not a terrible short....just not a particular good one either.
