The Canadian King of Comedy

Lucille Ball might be remembered as the Queen of Comedy, but if there was a King of Comedy it was Canadian born Michael Sinnott, who as Mack Sennett, started Keystone Studios in 1912 at the dawn of the invention of moving pictures. Mack Sennett invented slapstick comedy with his Keystone Cops, and introduced to the world acting legends like Charlie Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle, Mabel Normand, Gloria Swanson, Carole Lombard, W.C. Fields, star of this silent comedy Harry Langdon, and . . . get ready for it . . . . you won't believe it . . . . Honest to Charlie . . . orange juice drinking Bing Crosby. Many of the Sennett stars became serious actors, but comedy was king when Mack Sennett was involved, and this silly silent story is no exception. Harry and Marcie have just been married and they are on a train headed for Uncle Bill's where Harry can have a wonderful job opportunity if he can bring $500 with him. Poor Marcie (Marceline Day) and Harry (Harry Langdon) wouldn't have any luck at all if it wasn't for bad luck. Harry has his troubles on the train, and when the rich fellow across the aisle from Marcie spots the $500 she is holding he manages to steal it, so the newlywed couple must return home and forget about the new job opportunity with Uncle Bill. But the angels watch over fools and children, so grown-up Harry has nothing to worry about as he and Marcie stumble upon the fellow who stole their money, and with the help of Dangerous Dan McGraw everything works out just ducky . . . albeit with a plethora of whacky slapstick comedy that is as funny today as the day it was filmed almost a hundred years ago when moving pictures were a thing of wonder. Pop a bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
