  1. I actually like this one a lot, even though it isn't remembered as well as his others.

  2. Agreed, Meredith. This is a great one, even if it doesn't seem to rank highly when people talk about his all-time best. I credit Jim with opening my eyes to how exciting this film really is.

    Very nice writing on your MySpace about Mabel Normand, by the way. I quite enjoyed reading it.

    Thanks for listening!
