classic early american comedies


lady windermere's fan

Food Fights is a riotous collection of four short comedies featuring the greatest comedians of the silent era - all about food! Charlie Chaplin stars in The Rink; Buster Keaton is pitted against Fatty Arbuckle in the recently re-discovered The Cook. Harold Lloyd's The Chef shows the title character doing all his cooking by remote control, while Laurel & Hardy's Perfect Day features The Boys' hilarious attempts to have a family picnic. Chaplin's The Circus is his most sustained, carefree and generally underrated comedy. In Lady Windermere's Fan, Ernst Lubitsch transforms Oscar Wilde's verbal sophistication into a sumptuous display of visual storytelling and cinematic wit.
