A Family Affair
18 January 2015 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

It's one of Mack Sennett's standard plots that he returned to again and again over the years: the leads are in love but the parents want the girl to marry someone else.

It's a competent but not particularly brilliant version of the plot. What is of interest is that Roscoe Arbuckle directed it without credit; he co-starred himself and his real life wife, Minta Durfee; his rival is his nephew, Al St. John and Arbuckle's dog Luke has his screen premiere. Luke would appear in a baker's dozen movies over the next half dozen years to good effect.

Given that Arbuckle was already turning out some spiffy movies (particularly in combination with Mabel Normand), I can only conclude that it took Miss Normand or a shooting trip to the East to reduce producer Mack Sennett's influence.
