18 fresh and funny silent era comedy shorts in sparkling transfers from the original 35mm camera negatives.

Let's talk about Classic Silent Film Comedy: Mack Sennett's Keystone, Hal Roach's Lot of Fun, The Weiss Brothers....The Weiss Brothers? Yes, the Weiss Brothers made silent comedies too, and some good ones! Starring some of the best comics from the Golden Age of Comedy: Ben Turpin, Snub Pollard, Jimmy Aubrey, and Poodles Hanneford. As the Silent Era drew to a close, the Brothers Weiss, low-budget independent producers of westerns and serials, entered the silent comedy business with a vengeance. These two-reel shorts are forgotten little gems of laughter, featuring several genuine comedy greats plying their trades for the last time before talkies came in. See Ben Turpin, the cross-eyed Sennett star without his teeth! See legendary circus clown Poodles Hanneford in a tutu! See Snub Pollard play a two-headed cow! See the delightful Hairbreadth Harry comedies, silly spoofs of old-time melodramas! In new, sparkling transfers from the original 35mm camera negatives, these comedies look as fresh and funny as when originally released, with music by top silent film accompanists Philip C. Carli and David B. Drazin, and commentaries by Film Historian Richard M. Roberts.
