Continuous laughter greeted the offering
30 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is another two reel comedy manufactured in Mack Sennett's comical factory out in Californy state. It caused so much laughter you couldn't hear what the actors was talkin'. Charles Chaplin was the leading fun maker. Mabel Normand, with several of the actors finished the show artistically. Sennett must have been behind the camera. Continuous laughter greeted the offering. - The Moving Picture World, May 9, 1914
