Larry Semon - lost talent?
We all know what became of Oliver Hardy, but Larry Semon's early death in the 1920s robbed us of what could have been a great comedian in the sound era as well as a talented presence in the silents.

This car race-themed film is largely a number of routines on cars crashing, stunts over cliffs and the like, and Semon's worried white face popping up in manic mode as he speeds around in his car. Hardy is as good as you would expect as 'dangerous Dan', always on the thin edge of the wedge.

Best bit? Barrels and roofs and tar and everything else as the car shoots through the wooden walls en route to the end of the race. The teens and twenties had numerous examples of speed, speed, speed, and this is a good example. Fast, furious and frenetic.
