Description

The Douglas MacLean Collection on DVD

The Douglas MacLean Collection offers viewers a chance to rediscover the work of a forgotten master of silent comedy film. Douglas MacLean starred in 23 feature-length light comedies from 1919-1927, most of which are missing. Known as "the man with the million-dollar smile", MacLean portrayed a charming and industrious young man - like Harold Lloyd and the pre-Zorro Douglas Fairbanks - whose cleverness and pep carried him into and out of scrapes and adventures. Unlike Chaplin, Lloyd and Keaton - whose films were regularly revived and reissued - MacLean's films have been practically impossible to see until now. For this release, Undercrank Productions revives two of Douglas MacLean's surviving fast-moving and whimsical comedies. In One a Minute (1921) Douglas saves his family's ailing pharmacy from a competing big-box chain store, and Bell Boy 13 (1923) finds him on a wild series of escapades getting to his wedding. A bonus short, A Trip Through the World's Greatest Motion Picture Studios (1920), presents a fascinating glimpse into the Thomas H. Ince studios at Culver City. The films are presented here in brand new digital restorations sourced from the best surviving elements, preserved by the Library of Congress, with new musical scores by Ben Model. DVD is NTSC, Region-free.
