THE IRON MULE (Theatrical Release USA 1925)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Iron Mule—really great short silent film—has no character development, but the entertainment value overrides the lack of character development. It is so interesting to see what is happening that the film leads its audience from scene to scene. Very interesting to see what people were doing in the early 1800s and the chuckles are nicely spaced throughout the movie.
