Three Ages (1923)

Buster Keaton's feature debut Three Ages (1923) was filmed in three segments just in case it flopped, it could be cut into three short films and re-released. Ostensibly a spoof of Griffith's Intolerance, Keaton's film looks at love triangles throughout the ages, specifically the Caveman era, ancient Rome, and the modern era. It's not one of his most inspired efforts overall, but it contains many memorable moments, such as Buster's entrance on a dinosaur, or the gorgeous moment in which he tumbles over a cliff and gives the camera a kiss as he goes. 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...

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...

Running Wild (1927)

I'm not sure how many people know it today, but W.C. Fields is inarguably one of the greatest screen comedians of all time. Very little has been written about Fields's silent-era films, except to say that his silent work generally is not as good or as funny as his sound-era work, notably his two masterpieces It's a Gift (1934) and The Bank Dick (1940). I had seen him in D.W. Griffith's Sally of the Sawdust (1925), and in a very early short film — his first screen credit — called Pool Sharks (1919). (It was released on an excellent Criterion DVD, collecting six Fields shorts.) I liked him fine in both, but would not really argue that I liked them better than the sound-era films. read more...
