We're So Very Modern
15 March 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This imitation Pete Smith short has me of two minds. I enjoy Pete's shorts, his snarky voice making fun of the mores and methods of his contemporaries. But I also am a great fan of silent movies, from back when they were experimenting with the medium and discovering what, if anything it would become.

And therefore the lack of respect for the society of thirty and forty years earlier -- two featured performers in the silent movies this short highlights are Annette Kellerman, who was not only alive when this was released, but would live another forty years and Mary Pickford, whose last starring movie had been released the previous year -- is actually narrated by Leo Donnelly. So this movie irritates me, not only with its lack of understanding, but its cruelty.

And yet I still enjoyed listening to Pete's supercilious, made-up narration. And I think that clip of Kellerman only survives because of its inclusion here.

Ah well. Make of that what you will.
