| Amusing Silent Comedy
Max's neighbor Schultz is breeding chicken, that are always after Max's flower seed, and Schultz bride is his rooster Brigham. Max's daughter loves Schultz's son, so they try to forget their battling, and decide to have a nice engagement party.

If you wanted great silent comedy, it was always a good idea to turn to Hal Roach studios. This film is no exception, and involved Leo McCarey, no less. I think McCarey is probably best known for his later films, but he clearly left his mark on the silent era, too.

But for me, who really stands out is Martha Sleeper. Although she was in many, many things over the years, I do not feel she has strong name recognition. That is too bad, because whereas women were often just the objects of desire (see Chaplin, Keaton), in this film she is very much a part of the physical comedy. And that is admirable.
