Irreverent, anarchic, and truly American. These are the silent comedians: immigrant, outcasts and hard-up outsiders who personified the American Dream, becoming movie stars, heroes, icons. And here are there films. If you're looking for subtlety and refinement, drop the disc and run away. Inside, expect to find: exploding cars, innocent bystander smacked in the head with hammers, half-naked underwear models chased by cross-dressing villains, auctioneers crawling across airplane wings to retrieve false teeth, memory-impaired lovers, somnambulists, drunken reprobates, deranged acrobats, and the Keystone Kops.17 new-to-DVD silent comedy classics and archival rarities!
