    I did like the line delivered by the mother in the bank. Apart from that, I guess it's just not my kind of humor. 5 years 2 months ago

    Featuring Shemp Howard (of Three Stooges fame) as the bartender, Joe. It was also directed by Buster Keaton com-padre Edward F. Cline, so I imagine that you could play a veritable early-film-comedy "six degrees of separation" with this. 8 years 2 months ago
