Movie Info

Producer Robert Youngson puts together a nostalgic montage of silent era comedy clips. Featured are Laurel and Hardy, Fatty Arbuckle, Buster Keaton, Gloria Swanson, Edgar Kennedy, the Keystone cops, Charlie Chaplin, Wallace Beery and others. The narrator, Dwight Weist, gives insightful though sometimes inaccurate information about these silent screen immortals. This film and it's previous effort "Golden Age Of Comedy" helped to introduce a new generation to these comedy classics and created legions of new fans. This is the first in a series of comedy compilations produced by Youngson.
