Discovered in 1923 by slapstick pioneer Mack Sennett, Harry Langdon quickly came to rival silent comedians like Chaplin, Lloyd, and Keaton in popularity. Langdon's comic persona of the wide-eyed innocent bewildered by the world around him was developed in such classic shorts as Picking Peaches and His New Mamma, which have been restored to their full glory and included in this four-disc set. It also contains most of Langdon's seminal work for Sennett's studio and new restorations of several previously lost films, including Smile Please, The First 100 Years, The Luck o' the Foolish, The Hansom Cabman, All Night Long, Feet of Mud, The Sea Squawk, Boobs in the Wood, His Marriage Wow, Plain Clothes, Remember When, Lucky Stars, Saturday Afternoon, Fiddlesticks, Soldier Man, His First Flame, Knight Duty, Hooks and Jabs, and Love, Honor and Obey (the Law). Silent with original music.
