Description by OLDIES.com:
A Clever Dummy (1917, B&W, Silent): Ben impersonates a mechanical man in a attempt to win over the young lady who has captured his heart. Starring Ben Turpin, Chester Conklin, Wallace Beery; Directed by H. Raymaker, Ferris Hartman & Robert Kerr.
A Night Out (1915, B&W, Silent): Ben Turpin teams with the legendary Charlie Chaplin as two drunken pals whose running feud with a bar patron, escalates into an all-out brawl. In this rare appearance Ben plays it straight (although soused) without his trademark crossed-eyes and delivers a riotous performance. This film also marked the debut of beautiful 19 year old Edna Purviance, who would be featured in all of Chaplin's films over the next 8 years. Starring Ben Turpin, Charlie Chaplin, Edna Purviance; Directed by Charlie Chaplin.
Idle Eyes (1928, B&W, Silent): Hungry tramp Ben goes on a quest to find a meal by any means necessary. The sequence with Billy Barty as the baby is not to be missed. Starring Ben Turpin, Georgia O'Dell, Helen Gilmore, Billy Barty; Directed Leslie Goodwins.
