This Mack Sennett production from 1924 is a bit retro for him. The football squad wreaking havoc on a muddy field hearkens back to the Keystone Kops and the airplane theme back even further, to his Biograph comedies. All in all, it looks like the staff was checking out if the more sophisticated comedy of the 1920s was ready for a return to days of yore and Jack Cooper and Harry Gribbon are fine fighting for the elegant Madeline Hurlock, girl aviator.

Apparently they were not. Sennett's future would lay, for the next few years, with Harry Langdon and the Smith family comedies. Even so, it's good to see the technical advances of 1924 applied to the subjects of 1914. The result is a very funny movie.
