2-for-1 with clean jam jar
A welcome return to HippFest for the comedy genius that is Charley Chase, whose fame has been unfairly eclipsed by the familiar trinity of Chaplin, Keaton and Lloyd.
In our first film, Chase plays a befuddled gent called Charley who is “deathly afraid of anything that barked or yelped.” Through a series of mishaps and identity mix-ups Charley finds himself appointed as a butler and charged with bathing Duke the dog.
In our second film Chase plays Mr Moose who has secretly booked into a clinic to get his teeth straightened. Meanwhile Mrs Moose has made a secret appointment to get a nose job. Fresh out of the clinic with their respective “alterations”, the transformed couple fail to recognise each other, flirt outrageously and embark on a two-person love triangle. Preposterous and hilarious, this two-reeler stands not only as one of Chase’s best films, but as one of the best comedies of the silent era.
This popular Jeely Jar show starts with a fun game for the audience, our traditional ‘heids and bahookies’ competition!
