This is a classic silent short.
14 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I got a video copy of Don't Be Foolish about 15 years ago. I would say this is one of my favorite all time comedy shorts, although it is clearly a low budget product. Never heard of Billy West before and have never seen his other films. Very fast paced and I love his acrobatics. His attempts to avoid Miss Lydia and the cops is a hoot. What impressed me also was the sound track with my copy. This composed of six or more classic Dixieland tunes. Including Ain't She Got Class and others. It appears that all the action in this film is in synchronization with the tunes. A very clever little film and I still enjoy watching it three or four times a year.
