As limber as Harold Lloyd yet as lovable as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, Lupino Lane (1892-1959) was born Henry William George Lupino in London. During the heyday of silent comedy shorts, he headlined the popular series of "Lupino Lane Comedies" produced by Educational Pictures ("The Spice of the Program"). He often appeared with younger brother Wallace Lupino and directed many of these shorts (sometimes under the name "Henry W. George"), while others were directed by prolific comedy specialist Charles Lamont.

This is the first of these Alpha video silent film comedian DVDs that I've purchased. My expectation for all the rest is greatly lowered.
