The Bell Hop - Larry Semon

I have read that Larry Semon was number two to only Charlie Chaplin in his time, yes, he was more popular than Roscoe Arbuckle and Harold Lloyd at the time. Today he's almost forgotten. Take a look at this gem and maybe you will see why he was so popular. Impressive (expensive) stunts and special effects pepper this short - a man dives through the ceiling as he dreams of diving in the ocean - a little girl throws a lizard onto Semon's head - a scene where Semon hides in the chair and keeps moving before anyone can sit down is laugh out loud funny...
