Following the great success of our July silent comedy shorts compilation, we’re bringing you more of your favorite early comedians and pranksters this month!
"The Play House," (1921, 22 min.) Buster Keaton re-defines a one man show in this brilliant short in which he plays every person in a theatre - the minstrels on stage, the stagehand, and all members of the orchestra and audience!
"Double Whoopee," (1929, 20 min.) Stanley Laurel and Oliver Hardy are the new footman and doorman at a posh hotel and, on their first day of work, manage to partially undress a sultry blonde guest (Jean Harlow, no less!) and repeatedly escort an uppity foreign nobleman into an empty elevator shaft.
"A Day's Pleasure," (1919, 25 min.) A family boat outing with Charlie Chaplin is complicated by tumultuous waves, traffic and a pool of tar.
"High and Dizzy," (1920, 26 min.) Two tipsy doctors (one of them Harold Lloyd) plus one sleep-walking young lady equals delightful mayhem in this terrific Lloyd short.
