Product Description:

This compilation caters to fans of silent comedy by offering four rarely-seen humorous shorts, starring such once-legendary actors as Ben Turpin, Paul Parrott and Snub Pollard. It begins with the 1924 AIR POCKETS, starring Lige Conley - the tale of a zany inventor who tries to lure financiers to invest in his compact car. The next feature in the set, 1926's DON'T BUTT IN!, stars Parrott as a laborer who tries to defeat a big bully to win the hand of the boss's lovely daughter. The third feature, 1920's GRAB THE GHOST, stars Pollard and Marie Mosquini as newlyweds who learn that their honeymoon house is haunted by spirits. Finally, 1923's THE DAREDEVIL stars Ben Turpin in the story of a movie director who picks a man named Joe Magee off of the radio and attempts to turn him into a cowboy superstar.
