What movie is this?

Postby David Hennessy » Sat Feb 15, 2014 2:32 pm

Hi everyone--

I was watching this music video from Poland and they have this silent comedy movie in it. I was wondering if you could tell me the name of the movie and who the main actors are as it looks like a good film (the first clip starts around :19 and then another one at around :30 and so on). Thanks a lot and God bless you all.

PS As to why I was watching Polish music videos from the '60s, well that's a different story....

Well I recognized Edward Everett Horton and Jack Duffy and I think the heavy set guy with Duffy is Walter Hiers? Not too sure, the guy in the flooded back seat looks Al St John. The clip of Edward Everett Horton looks like it's from DAD'S CHOICE.
The silent comedy experts here can tell more. Am sure the clips are from different films.

Definitely DADS CHOICE (1928) with Edward Everett Horton, I think the Walter Hiers/Jack Duffy clip is from WEAK BUT WILLING (1925). The Al St, John clip is ringing zero bells, and I think the guy reading the newspaper looks a bit like a young Ralph Sipperly, but nothing from there.

As for the song----Poland's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest, 1986.

Thank you all for your replies!
Now I'll go looking for a DVD of Edward Everett Horton (is there even is such a thing?)
