Linder's charming, and there are some fine moments, especially the famed mirror gag which is actually superior to the famed Marx Brothers version in DUCK SOUP. Alas, Linder's plotting is too scattershot, and the film just falls apart in random gags.
A solid comedy, which if not for a few flaws could be considered a minor classic. Unfortunately, the pacing of the film drags it times and the majority of the funniest gags are in the beginning half of the film. Still, this is silent comedy in its top form, and Linder was one of the original masters. 4 stars, def worth checking out
