THE WEAK-END DRIVER
- Viewing Period
- 10:00 Mon. 11th - 12:59 Sun. 17th. October
Excerpted from the feature film The Cloudhopper (aka Keep Jumping), it was retitled The Weak-end Driver by Castle Film and edited into a film less than 10 minutes long for sale. The great thing about this film is that it is directed by Stephen Roberts and edited by Sam Zimbalist, who would later become the producer of the blockbuster Ben-Hur starring Charlton Heston. As is typical of Larry Semon's work, this silent comedy is short but full of excitement, from chases on trains, motorcycles, and cars to acrobatic action on airplanes.
