Editorial Reviews

A tremendous collection of some of the funniest movies ever produced! Now a whole new generation will be able to rediscover the appeal of these two-reel silent masterpieces. These delightful comedies date as far back as 1925 and have been unseen in decad

TELEVISTA's OLD TIME COMEDY CLASSICS series derive from the JEF Films archives. Decades ago, Jef made some of the best Super-8 dubs of silents then available.

To date, there are 12 total "Comedy Classics" volumes in print or envisioned by TELEVISTA, whose info suggests these "lovingly restored" 2-reelers are appearing on DVD for the first time.

DETAILS for OLD TIME COMEDY CLASSICS Vol. 7:

ARE GOLFERS CUCKOO? - Ex-circus clown Charles Dorety and Arbuckle clone Gene Layman create pandemonium while caddying at the posh Biltmore Golf Club. Those sensitive to racial stereotypes won't be thrilled seeing an anonymous blackfaced caddy.

FOOLING CASPER - Little Bud Duuncan, who played the shorter half of Mutt & Jeff at the start of his career and Snuffy Smith at the end, here assays along with Thelma Hill another comic strip, Toots & Casper.

MINE YOUR BUSINESS! - Originally "A Chocolate Cowboy," Fred Parker's screen debut was in this now very un-PC two-reeler, as he smears cork and masquerades as Rastus the shuck n' jive shoe shine. Rastus eventually heads West to prospect for gold.

FIGURES DO LIE - An incomplete dub has Violet Palmer as Etta Egg and Jack Cooper as husband Hammond. Cooper wishes to judge a beauty contest without his wife's knowledge, but Palmer finds out, disguises herself as an entrant and wins first prize. Also here is Fatty Alexander, a member of the glandularly-challenged trio known as Ton of Fun.
