Summary
At the height of his film career, Harry Langdon was considered one of the four best comics of the silent film era. His screen character was that of a wide-eyed, childlike man with a feeble smile, an owlish blink, and an innocent's understanding of the world and the people in it. This video collects the three silent feature films widely acknowledged as his best. Strong man: After a tour of duty in WWI, a witless young Belgian comes to America and seeks out his dedicated pen pal, but his quest for Mary Brown leads him from mishap to comic disaster. Tramp, tramp, tramp: When a destitute shoemaker's son enters a cross-country foot race with hopes of winning the $25,000 prize, spectacular comedy and destruction follow. Long pants: A sheepish young man springs into adulthood and is immediately smitten with a hard-boiled drug-smuggling femme fatale. When she is jailed, he comes to her aid, ushering his fugitive moll through a series of riotous scrapes
