Description by OLDIES.com:
THE SERVANT GIRL'S LEGACY (1914): Servant girl Mabel Paige rejects her long-suffering boyfriend Oliver Hardy (here billed as "Babe Hardy") after she comes into a large inheritance.
SOMETHING IN HER EYE (1915): Billie Rhodes gets some dirt in her eye, causing her to wink uncontrollably. Soon she has a horde of unwelcome admirers, including Oliver Hardy.
VILLA OF THE MOVIES (1917): "Slim" Summerville is a mild-mannered boarding house tenant supplying arms to the Mexican Revolution in this bizarre comedy from Mack Sennett, featuring Glen Cavender as "Pancho" Villa.
PLAGUES AND PUPPY LOVE (1917): Pretty, virginal Florence Curtis is being pursued by four dastardly cads in the park – and only a less-than-brave Larry Semon can save her.
THE SLEUTH (1925): Stan Laurel is a master detective who uses a series of disguises – including dressing in drag(!) – to always get his man.
SEA SCAMPS (1926): Malcolm Sebastian starred in a series of Educational comedies as "Big Boy", beginning at the ripe old age of two in 1925. Here he's paired with some other kids on a mishap-prone sea cruise in an attempt to create an ersatz Our Gang.
HELLO SAILOR (1927): Lupino Lane and his brother Wallace are a couple of sailors on shore leave who get mixed up (literally) with twin sisters. Directed by Mark Sandrich, later renowned for his work with Fred Astaire, including The Gay Divorcee (1934), Top Hat (1935), and Holiday Inn (1942).
BONUS: Felix the Cat in False Vases (1929): Felix the Cat visits China to replace a broken vase for his hot-tempered wife. "Felix the Cat cartoons are not only unusually surreal," says Carpenter, "but also packed with what is now thought of as politically incorrect humor."
