Our HippFest Taste of Silents season begins with two short comedy films - Easy Street a Charlie Chaplin all-time family-favourite about a reformed tramp who becomes a police constable and is assigned to rough and tumble Easy Street to deal with Eric the Tough - a huge thug who dominates the lives of everyone there. Followed by Wrong Again a Laurel and Hardy classic where our favourite comedy duo are given jobs as stable hands and are put in charge of a thoroughbred horse named “Blue Boy" confusion and hilarity ensues when the two mistake the horse for a missing painting of the same name, and go in pursuit of a $5,000 reward.
