A tremendous collection of some of the funniest movies ever produced! Now a whole new generation are able to rediscover the appeal of these one and two-reel silent masterpieces. These delightful comedies date as far back as 1914 and have been unseen in decades. These little comedic gems have been lovingly restored and are offered on DVD for the very first time! MEET THE FOLKS (1927) - Jimmie Adams a.k.a. James Adams, a.k.a. Jimmy Adams of The Ranch Boys, (4 October 1888 - 19 December 1933) was a silent-screen comedian. He appears here in a two-reel comedy from the Al Christie studios. NUGGET JIM'S PARDNER (1916) - Frank Borzage, the first person to ever win the Academy Award for Best Director appears as the lead actor in this 1916 film. This is a western and not a comedy but has been included on the disc as a change of pace. It is a delightful and rare piece of vintage filmmaking. THE SULTAN'S WIFE (1917) - Screen legend Gloria Swanson stars as a teenager yachting to India with her family and boyfriend, Bobby Vernon. While ashore they run into serious trouble and Gloria is kidnapped by the Rajah. A Mack Sennett production. THE DANGER GIRL (1916) - Another Mack Sennett production starring Gloria Swanson and Bobby Vernon. In this one Gloria disguises herself as a man, in order to lure a "dangerous" vamp away from her boyfriend Bobby. THE PLUMBER (1914) - In this hilarious Mack Sennett comedy Charles Murray is the most inept leak-stopper you could ever imagine!
