An Auspicious Screen Debut for Eddie
22 October 2016 | by richardchattenSee all my reviews

Eddie Cantor hit the ground running in Hollywood with what has to be one of the most opened-out stage adaptations in film history. What started life as a Broadway musical has become a high-octane silent comedy filmed extensively out and about on location in California, bludgeoning the audience with a steady succession of vivid sight gags and ending with a remarkably convincing-looking (and funny) climax worthy of Harold Lloyd with the leads hanging from a sheer cliff face. Despite being famed for his singing and his distinctive voice, Eddie has the perfect face (and facility for physical comedy) to be a natural for silent movies; and is beautifully matched by a most winsome Clara Bow.
