Storyline

The Pennypackers are a family of social climbers. Their daughter is about to be married solely to get ahead in the world. There is another potential marriage in their household, as their housemaid has been proposed to by many of the other servants. Everything changes when the somewhat off-looking Lucky Luke Larson enters their lives. Making his wealth in oil, he is purportedly the son of the Pennypacker's now deceased former business partner, whose last wish was for his son and their daughter to be wed. The Pennypacker parents are glad to oblige if only for access to his wealth and associated prestige, which leaves their daughter's current fiancé out in the cold. But Lucky Luke and the housemaid fall in love with each other. Will true love or greed triumph? Written by Huggo

Turpin is Priceless in Fun Comedy
21 September 2012 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Bright Eyes (1922)

*** (out of 4)

Charming and at times very funny comedy about parents who force their daughter (Harriet Hammond) to marry an oil tycoon (Ben Turpin) but during the wedding they learn that he's now broke. BRIGHT EYES is without question one of the better Mack Sennett shorts from this period and the majority of the credit has to go to ol' cute eyes himself. Turpin does a really good job here and those legendary cross-eyes of his certainly fit so well into the story. There are some really funny jokes aimed at his eyes including a hilarious bit where he and his future bride are on a date but his eye cause him to keep eating out of her soup bowl. Another funny sequence follows this as Turpin tries to play the game of golf but not being able to properly see the ball is certainly an issue. The second portion of the film deals with Turpin finding out he's broke and having to join his almost in-laws as a normal worker. These scenes also contain some nice laughs thanks in large part to Turpin. There's no question that fans of his are going to enjoy this film and if you're not a fan than this will probably change that.
