Abstract:

The daredevil spirit of the 1920's infected early comedy films as a reckless combination of plane, train, streetcar, motorcycle, horse and automobile chases presented side-splitting, breathtaking, white-knuckle art forms that even today are without parallel. Mack Sennett encapsulated the formula of his comedies as "Speed, pretty girls, and spectacular effects." Here are presented six films loaded with action, often quite elaborately produced in which every foil and gag sets another in motion until every prop in sight has been squeezed of comic potential.
