It's a good thing that the British The Joyous Adventures of Aristide Pujol is a silent film; we'd hate to watch some poor actor stumble over the pronunciation of the title character's name. That character, a silly-but-lovable chap who poses as a baron, is played by Kenelm Foss, who also produced the film. In the course of 5 reels, Foss--or Pujol--markets a remedy for corns, takes a lovable little orphan under his wing, patches up a lover's quarrel, and marries into money. With the exception of leading lady Barbara Everest, few of the cast members of Aristide Pujol were able to achieve any sort of screen fame. The film was based on a novel by W.J. Locke.
