Great Hunter Ben Turpin
15 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Ben Turpin, Sennett's best walking sight gag, gets a gun and a wife, and misuses both. Will a sneaky other man alienate his wife's affections, while Turpin wanders around in the woods shooting at stuff as THE WILD GOOSE CHASER?

Ben Turpin's comedy in the 20s generally amounted to standing around with his amazing crossed eyes, and having things happen to him, that are completely incongruous because of the crossed eyes. This can be funny enough, but not usually for the entire length of a two reeler. This one seems pretty typical, and is pretty ordinary. The reminder of the gags are standard order Sennett, with people falling around and getting stuck in the mud.
