Lizzies of the field was a partly amusing silent comedy short
25 June 2009 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This was another silent comedy short I watched on the "American Slapstick" DVD collection. It's from Mack Sennett starring Billy Bevan. In this one, there's a car race between two competing garages that are built across each other. There's a few amusing sight gags like a bed that's running like a car or the way one car manages to come quickly to the finish line or seeing how some people are bumping into each other. And I liked the last line as depicted on the title card. Otherwise, I didn't think this was such a hilarious short and part of the gags just seemed a little shopworn to me though I'm sure many of them here were brand new and funny to many of the audiences that watched this then. Still, if you're interested in seeing many of these vintage films, Lizzies of the Field is worth a look.
