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...

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...

Chaplin's Mutual Comedies 1916-1917 (2014)

Many of the world's greatest film writers, and many of the world's great writers, period, have expounded upon the genius of Charles Chaplin, (he was recently chosen as the greatest filmmaker of all time by yours truly), while others have written negatively of this supreme showman, this supreme poet of the cinema. But it occurs to me that, for a long time, it was not possible to see Chaplin's films in the proper way. Many of them had fallen into public domain, or were shown on 16mm prints at the wrong speed, or transferred to gloomy-looking VHS tapes in the early days of home video. It could be entirely possible that a number of Chaplin's detractors have seen these substandard examples of his work -- with the grace and timing lost -- and made their judgment call. read more...

The Freshman (1925)

Considered one of Harold Lloyd's masterpieces, after Safety Last and The Kid Brother, The Freshman (1925) sends Harold off to college, where he tries to win the heart of Peggy (Jobyna Ralston). He thinks he's become popular by emulating his favorite movie character, but instead he's the school "boob." (He does a silly little dance any time he meets someone.) Highlights include the party scene in which Harold wears a not-quite-completed suit and the exciting, climactic football game. In 1990, it was selected for the Library of Congress's National Film Registry, and it holds up extremely well today. read more...

The Lemon Drop Kid (1951)

I'm surprised this halfway decent Bob Hope movie hasn't become a Christmas classic. It's silly and fun, with just the right combination of big city-savvy and sentimental sweet. Hope plays an in-debt gambler -- very loosely based on a Damon Runyon character -- who must swindle a huge pile of cash during the holidays, so he sets up a fake old-folks home ("The Nellie Thursday Home For Old Dolls")! A range of delightful character actors either helps or hinders. Hope is pretty stressed throughout the movie, and it's a delightful break when "Silver Bells" comes on, showing Christmastime in the city at its best. Apparently co-writer Frank Tashlin directed a chunk of the movie without credit. Future Plan 9 from Outer Space star Tor Johnson appears as (not much of a stretch) a Swedish wrestler. read more...
