Did You Know?


Following the successful telecasts of Othello (1922) and _'The Eagle (1925)_, New York City's WJZ (Channel 7), began a weekly series of Sunday evening silent film feature presentations, shown more or less in their entirety, which aired intermittently for the next twelve months. This feature was initially broadcast Sunday 19 December 1948, and, like the rest of the series, aired simultaneously on sister stations WFIL (Channel 6) (Philadelphia) and freshly launched WAAM (Channel 13) (Baltimore), an innovation at the time; the following week's selection would be Hands Up! (1926). See more »

Excellent portrayal of an Imp
8 June 2001 | by Craig SmithSee all my reviews

The (mis)adventures of a young boy constantly in trouble. Young Henry Peck goes through life looking for pranks that create trouble for other people and laughs for him. This is a movie played strictly for laughs. This is a comedy based on real life (after all, how many "imps" did you know growing up?) and those are always the best comedies as we can relate to what is happening on the screen.

With no talking, it was imperative in silent movies that actions speak louder than words. And, in young Henry's case, his facial expressions make the movie. The closeups on his face when he gets an idea shows very well his impish nature. You can just see the wheels turning.
