CAPTAIN KIDD’S KIDS (Theatrical Release USA 1919)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Captain Kidd’s Kids—silent short film with a good storyline—backs itself with terrific camerawork and background scenery. It accesses the talents of Harold Lloyd, ‘Snub’ Pollard, and Bebe Daniels to portray the story with Hal Roach in the directing chair.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. A wonderful film to see for an afternoon lunch watch. Not much has really changed from then until now. That is a good life lesson to learn early. This is a simple story told well.
