Speedy (1928)

The summery Speedy (1928) was Harold Lloyd's final silent film, though it's perhaps more notable for an onscreen appearance of baseball legend Babe Ruth. Lloyd plays the title character, a baseball-obsessed ne'er-do-well who can't seem to hang onto a job -- as the movie begins, he's a soda jerk -- though his girl, Jane (Ann Christy) loves him anyway. ("Speedy" was his nickname in real life as well.) The plot has him trying to save Jane's grandfather's horse-drawn trolley car, though there are long, carefree segments not connected to anything, such as a crazy day at Coney Island; the movie has a terrific, on-location feel for New York City. Director Ted Wilde received an Oscar nomination for Best Comedy Director, a category that, sadly, didn't last long. (Lloyd was always in charge of his movies, but never took a directing credit for himself.) read more...

Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928)

I had been under the impression that Buster Keaton's Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928) was directed by Charles F. Reisner. That's a forgivable mistake, since he's actually credited as director. But I recently read in World Film Directors, edited by John Wakeman, that Keaton did not care a whit about credits. Sometimes he was credited as director and sometimes not. But the truth is that he directed all of his own pictures up until Spite Marriage and the advent of sound in 1929. But it's only "auteur" theorists like myself who fret about who directed what. Once you sit down to watch Steamboat Bill, Jr., there's no question who made it. read more...

Battling Butler (1926)

Most fans and critics agree that boxing picture Battling Butler (1926) is probably Buster Keaton's least successful picture, though it was a money-maker in its day. Based on a play, the material was a bit too literal and plot-driven to have inspired Keaton's creative juices. He plays Alfred Butler, a rich layabout whose manservant provides even the simplest tasks. ("Arrange it," Butler continually orders.) read more...

Chaplin's Essanay Comedies (1915)

Flicker Alley has completed the trilogy. In 2013 the company released the complete Chaplin Keystone films on DVD, and in 2014, the complete Chaplin Mutual films on Blu-ray, and now comes the expected Essanay set. (Please see my other reviews for more details.) It's every bit as good as we might have hoped. These particular films are largely in the public domain, and it's so important to be able to watch them in good-quality transfers. read more...
