Junk Man's Pearls

David William Lieberman was born in Russia in 1888 but three years later wound up in New York City when his family moved to the U.S. for a shot at a better life. In 1912, at the age of 24 he got a job along with future comedy legend Edgar Kennedy and others as whacky policemen in comedy motion pictures for the Keystone Film Company. The Keystone Cops became the most famous comedy ensemble in early motion pictures, and David Lieberman, who changed his name to Hank Mann, became one of the first pioneering comedians of this new and revolutionary medium. His comedy is not remembered today as well as some of the other early comedians, but he will bring as many smiles and laughs with his stories as any of the other comedians that are better remembered. I was amazed as I watched this two reel adventure how much story plot he could squeeze into twenty three quick minutes. There is no fluff and filler in this comedy, the action is fast and furious and I was left in wonder when I thought about the junk man's helper in the first few minutes and then remembered the amazing transformation into the sweetheart of the society girl . . . and all of the 'junk' that helped to transform the dim-witted junk man's helper into the man that the society girl couldn't resist. Wow. After Hank Mann stopped making silent comedies he didn't stop appearing in motion pictures . . . If you watch closely you can find him in hundreds . . . yes, I said HUNDREDS of motion pictures and television shows until his final appearance as a bartender in the 1960 television series Klondike. You can find him in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, The Maltese Falcon, several Charlie Chan movies, The Man Who Came to Dinner, Arsenic and Old Lace, A Place in the Sun, Brigadoon, Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy, Not of This Earth, television shows like The Jack Benny Show and Gunsmoke and The Three Stooges . . . you get the idea. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
