Mack & Fatty have all the fun while Mabel looks on!
9 January 2014 | by GblakeliiSee all my reviews

The version reviewed had the title, A Small Town Bully(adapted from The Little Teacher). Whether this was meant as a remake of the 1909 Griffith film in which Sennett was also in is somewhat doubtful. Except for the basic premise of a new teacher and wild students, there is no other similarity. There doesn't seem to be any classic novel with this title, although there was a play, but it wasn't written until 1918 or 1919. Mabel Normand has the lead, but she doesn't have to stretch her acting talent. 3rd lead, Mack Sennett, really has the juiciest role and makes the most of it. If you thought the Bowery Boys were the only adults playing juvenile delinquents, watch Mack & Fatty in this film! Can you go wrong in making a classroom hijinks silent comedy film? A resounding no! There is a brief love interest for Mabel involved, and people fall off a bridge and into the water. Fast paced and fun to watch.
