Trivia

This is one of about two dozen feature films directed by Harry A. Pollard, which the American Film Institute Catalog of Feature Films, in all 3 of their volumes, 1911-1920, 1921-1930 and 1931-1940, chooses to erroneously credit to comedian Harry (Snub) Pollard, who is, of course, a different person entirely.

This movie grew up with me.
3 February 2001 | by FrankyD45See all my reviews

I always used to watch this when i was a kid. I really enjoyed it. I recommend it to people who have the time to watch it. It is very unique and interesting. It is not horrible nor the best movie ever, but it is a watchable movie, something to discuss over a meeting because of its uniqueness. Rent it if you can get a hold of it.
