(1926, Frank Capra) Capra’s first solo feature – a silent comedy masterpiece – stars Harry Langdon as a carnival strong man’s assistant, forced to sub for his drunken boss with disastrous results – in a cataclysmic finale whose pyrotechnics show Capra’s early command of crowds and spectacle. Approx. 78 min. 35mm.
“A MEMORABLE COMEDY! Baby-faced Langdon’s best movie.”
– Leonard Maltin
“Leaps from gag to gag… stirring up gales of laughter!”
– The New York Times
