So Excruciatingly Funny -- April 11, 2021


Motion Picture News, 30-April-1921

In his wonderful book The Silent Clowns, Walter Kerr suggested that Lloyd Hamilton was one of the great silent comics whose reputation has diminished. This is because many of the Mermaid Comedies that Hamilton made for Educational during the 1920s are lost. Perhaps this is also because he was not able to succeed as a star in feature films.

Jimmie Adams appeared in many silent comedies and, for a time, was one of the Hallroom Boys
