Did You Ever Have One of Those Days?
13 January 2010 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

When Harry's wedding day is besmirched by a lucky horseshoe falling on his head and, when he throws it away, smashing a boxful of mirrors, bride Alice Day chides him that only fools and children are superstitious. However, when they miss the ship for their honeymoon cruise and are shanghaied for the China trade, she has to learn a bit of adaptability....

Mack Sennett's staff were still shaping the details of Harry's pixilated naif at this stage of his career, but he had been playing it for more than twenty years on the stage, so his slow, slow reactions under the glaring eyes of his shipmates as he tries to eat a bowlful of rubber bands is spot on. Some of the gags are simple, rrough Sennett fare, but Harry's reactions always make them a little better.

Keep out an eye for Andy Clyde in an early mustachioed performance.
