Description by OLDIES.com:

A tremendous collection of some of the funniest movies ever produced! Now a whole new generation will be able to rediscover the appeal of these two-reel silent masterpieces. These delightful comedies date as far back as 1920 and have been unseen in decades. These little comedic gems have been lovingly restored and are offered on DVD for the very first time! Includes ROARS AND UPROARS (1922) - An extremely rare film from C. L. Chester Productions. The very wealthy and now unfortunately dead Mr. P. Nutt, in revenge for having his brother call him "a crazy inventor," makes his niece his heiress but only on the condition she marry a genius whom the world calls crazy. Habeas & Corpus, attorneys for the deceased place a personal ad in the newspaper looking for potential suitors. A long line of possible husbands vie for the hand of the lovely Miss Hazel Nutt, each one kookier than the other. THIS IS THE LIFE (1926) - When a bottle of hair tonic renders him bald, Jimmie is mistaken for a famous French beautician and is called upon to demonstrate his skills. Jimmie Adams, Charlotte Merriam, Billy Engle, William Irving, Dorothy Sebastian and Aloha Porter star in this hilarious comedy from producer Al Christie which was originally released as "Beauty à la Mud." A HOME SPUN HERO (1920) - An Al Christie production starring Bobby Vernon and featuring Helen Darling, George Ford and Vera Steadman. Bobby Vernon was a talented comic actor during the silent era, who became a writer and comedy supervisor at Paramount for W.C. Fields and Bing Crosby, when the sound era arrived. Vernon was the son of noted actress Dorothy Vernon, and he first appeared on-stage when he was only eleven years old. Five years later, he was appearing in Universal's Joker comedies. He began starring in Keystone romantic comedies opposite Gloria Swanson in 1915, and in Al Christie romantic comedies in 1917. Vernon enjoyed popularity until the dawn of talkies. 13TH ALARM - This film was produced as a "Hey Fellas!" comedy, which was basically a copy of Hal Roach's Our Gang series. This time around the kids are firemen. Lots of funny sight gags and adorable children make this film enjoyable for young and old. RAISIN-TROUBLE!! (1926) - A Mirthquake Comedy featuring The Mirthquake Players; Jack Cooper, Lillian Worth and Charley King. Billy West, the best-known and most successful Charlie Chaplin imitator was the producer of this very funny 1926 comedy.
