Langdon
25 February 2008 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

His New Mamma (1924)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A farmboy (Harry Langdon) doesn't like that his father (Andy Clyde) is about to marry a younger woman and it turns out she's only doing so for his money. The first half of the film deals with Langdon and Clyde having to share the same bed, which leads to some good laughs since the old man has a long beard, which keeps getting in Langdon's way. The second half of the film turns a bit sour but at least we have the Mack Sennett Bathing Beauties to look at. Clyde certainly steals the film as the father but this is the best that I've seen Langdon in these early shorts.
