Silent Fans Will Enjoy
His Unlucky Night (1928)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Mack Sennett produced short has a married man (Billy Bevan) running into his single friend (Vernon Dent) and convincing him to go out that night in hopes of finding a woman. The single friend ends up married but the friend's wife mistakenly thinks he's out with another woman and chaos follows. HIS UNLUCKY NIGHT will certainly appeal to silent film fans because of the great cast but there's no question that it's lost scenes hamper or at least keep you from fully enjoying the picture. There are several sequences that are still lost so they're replaced by title cards explaining what we're missing. As far as the film goes, for the most part I found it to be entertaining with a good number of laughs and especially early on when Bevan keeps giving away boxes of candy to a girl (Carole Lombard) hoping that she'll go out with them. The ending is also very good once all the mistaken identity happens and you've got Bevan's wife chasing after him and the girl's father (Andy Clyde) chasing after the new husband. Both Bevan and Dent are in fine form and there's no question that Clyde and Dot Farley add nice support. Film buffs will enjoy seeing Lombard in this early role, although she isn't given too much to do.
