Slapstick #13 -- September 22, 2011

Ben Turpin and Phyllis Haver starred in Mack Sennett's feature comedy Married Life.  Turpin, who had a long career in silent and sound movies, was famous for his crossed eyes.  Be sure to click on the image to see a larger version.  Note the prominent "NOT A WAR PICTURE."  War movies fell out of favor for a while in the early 1920s, but came back to popularity with movies like What Price Glory? and Lilac Time.
