'An enjoyable and meticulous recreation of a pioneering, mythical era in Old Hollywood... From his founding of Keystone Studios in 1913, Sennett dominated the screen comedy scene, birthing the careers of the likes of Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle while, with the Keystone Kops, defining 'madcap' comedy.' Empire
'This is a compelling tale of ambition, lust and financial chicanery that is vividly evocative of its period.' Film Review
'The story rattles along with all the dash of a Keystone Kops chase... Louvish is expert in vivid description and insightful interpretation, and he brings these movies to life on the printed page like no other film historian.' Sunday Times
