A Ten-Minute Egg Is A Ten-Minute Movie
22 November 2020 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Joseph Forte has just conned Ena Gregory and her mother out of their fortune with a phony oil well. In walks Charley Chase, pretending to be a tough guy by virtue of his business cards, and soon it's a chase comedy.

It's one of Chase's one-reel "Jimmy Jump" shorts, made when he was reintroducing himself to the movie audience after half a decade behind the screen. It's fast, it's furious, it's full of gags, and it has just a sketch of a plot, because for a real story, you had to go to two reels. Excellent for what it is.
