Day 2 of TSFF-it's comedy shorts time!
The Hal Roach Studio in the 1920s was like a candy store for hungry comedy goers-an absolute overabundance of top notch comedians. From comedy teams to solo artists, this showcase of “The Lot of Fun” comes jammed packed with TSFF favourites:
Laurel & Hardy are prison escapees with the cops hot on their tails. What choice do the boys have but climb an unfinished skyscaper. It’s mayhem over matter with the boys and shows that it wasn't just Harold Lloyd who could make thrill comedies. Liberty 1929
The kids of Our Gang create their own makeshift country fair and put on a show including imitations of their favourite movie stars in The Big Show.
TSFF favourite Charley Chase gets his teeth fixed and becomes irresistible to the ladies in Mighty Like a Moose.
Harold Lloyd, Bebe Daniels and Snub Pollard get into all sorts of trouble in a dance hall when crooks try to take everything they have in Young Mr. Jazz.
Returning favourites Anita Garvin & Marion Byron get way in over their head with a hot baby. Can the gals get their just reward?
Jordan Klapman is providing live musical accompaniment.
Introduced by Chris Seguin.
