Just what the title says
7 October 2017 | by He_who_lurksSee all my reviews

This short film is an early comedy directed by G. A. Smith, and its title will tell you all you need to know. Basically a man (not really 'old') is sitting at a table drinking a glass of beer, and then starts making stupid faces. The actor who played the "old" man (Tom Green) has some really good acting skills with his expressions, even if the acting is overdone. It's not at all ground-breaking like Smith's later POV experiments, and is more just the sort of movie you'd make while screwing around with you video camera. People in 1898 must have thought this was pretty funny, but it comes off pretty dumb to modern audiences. But for fans of early cinema it's entertaining while it lasts.
