Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
In the early years of cinema, nothing kept audiences in stitches quite like a good dose of physical comedy -- affectionately known as slapstick. Though it may not be as prevalent today as it was in the days of Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, and W.C. Fields, audiences can still look back on this lost art form and relive the noggin-knocking fun of yesteryear in this hilarious compilation of some of the best slapstick routines ever committed to celluloid. Featuring the antics of the Marx Brothers, Fatty Arbuckle, Buster Keaton, and many, many more, this nostalgic release is sure to please comedy lovers everywhere.
