For Karloff & Silent Film Fans
12 June 2016 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

The real attraction to a film like this is Boris Karloff - his name still holds clout! Anyone that gets intrigued by him and his films will want to see Karloff in more film roles - that is the reason I watched this film. Sadly, Karloff's part is small in this one.

The only other reason to watch this film is to view another silent comedy film. Boris Karloff and Silent Films - that it. The story is so-so. It's all that great and the comedy is not all that funny - even for it's time era. With all that said, I'm not completely disappointed making the decision to watch this film. It's a refreshing change.

It's a sports (boxing) comedy film - good for a couple of giggles here and there but that's about it. It's a movie that's easily passed up by Karloff's fan (due to his small role) and silent film buffs alike.

5/10
