Description by OLDIES.com:

His Private Life (1926, B&W, Silent): Millionaire Reggie enlists in the Army to impress his fiance. His worst nightmare comes true when he learns that his former butler is now his drill sergeant. Lupino Lane was descended from a distinguished London acting family. His comedic and considerable acrobatic skills made him a slapstick triumph on Broadway and later in the silents. In His Private Life he is ably directed by a post-scandal "Fatty" Arbuckle. Stars Lupino Lane and Virginia Vance.

The Doughboy (1926, B&W, Silent): Bumbling infantryman Snub Pollard is released upon the Kaiser's hordes! Stumbling his way behind German lines, he unintentionally leaves a trail of devastation and chaos behind, swiftly bringing the enemy to their knees. This well-preserved print is an example of Snub Pollard's work at the Weiss Brothers' studio, after having parted ways with Hal Roach. Directed by James D. Davis.

The Flying Ace (1925, B&W, Silent): Hapless Private Billy manages to raise himself from KP duty to flying ace. He proceeds to wreak havoc on the German Air Force, and return home a hero! Stars Billy Bevan, Madeline Hurlock, Andy Clyde, and Sunshine Hart. Directed by Arthur Rosson.
