3 July 2000 | FISHCAKE
| It's interesting as a "dawn of sound" museum piece.
This "dawn of sound" museum piece (3 spoken words, sound effects, and music)does have a certain charm, when it doesn't try to be funny, in telling of a livery stable operator who has trouble accepting the emergence of the automobile. Russell Hicks and Patsy Ruth Miller are pretty good in their roles. The rest of the cast are pretty awful. If you can time warp yourself back to 1927 to view the film in the ambiance of its era, you may find it mildly enjoyable. If you are firmly fixed, mind-wise, in the year 2000 probably not.
