Not bad for 1911
28 July 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Jim (Francis Ford) and Billy (Edith Storey) "Billy and His Pal" is a very early silent--and because it's so early, I'll cut it some slack when it comes to the plot. As the other reviewer has pointed out, it is pretty weak in regard to the story---which is very, very, very simple.

The story begins with Jim and his young pal, Billy, joking around. Soon, Jim leaves and sees a Mexican bandit trying to molest some lady. Jim, being a hero, intervenes and beats up the villain. Of course, the Bandito is determined to get revenge and he assembles his gang and they kidnap poor 'ol Jim. They WOULD end up killing Jim if it wasn't for his old pal, and Billy rounds up some help to save the day. That's really all there is to this one and while 15 sounds short, the film could have been made is less than 10 and it would have played better. But, as I said above, the film is very early and so the lulls that occur are understandable. Not brilliant but watchable.
