Two-reel Comedy Festival



I would consider these comedies a good night's entertainment.


Marcel Perez in Oh, What a Day (1918)


Perez always offered something imaginative in his comedies.  I like his idea for an automatic bath that allows a person to get washed and dried with a minimum of effort.  The film was directed by William Seiter, who later directed Laurel & Hardy's Sons of the Desert (1933).


Roaring Lions on the Midnight Express (1918)



Toto (Armando Novello) in Fire the Cook (1918)



Love's False Faces (1919)


This Sennett comedy has a large cast.  The actors pictured in this preview include Chester Conklin, Jimmy Finlayson, Marie Prevost, Charlotte Mineau, Kalla Pasha, Eddie Gribbon and Heinie Conklin.


Lyons & Moran in Ready-Made Dudes (also known as A Dog Gone Shame) (1919)

 
Lyons and Moran were a highly successful comedy team in their day.  I was able to turn up a few images of the team.
