THE KID BROTHER, another geek vs. bullies tale distiguished by some really heartwarming moments and a hilarious scene with a monkey. Amazon 5.0 stars from over 4 users

Not only was Lloyd as gifted a comic actor as either Chaplin or Keaton, his films hold up at least as well — for casual viewers unfamiliar with silent film, probably better. As a first introduction to silent film, I would pick The Kid Brother over the best of Chaplin (Modern TimesCity Lights) or Keaton (The General, Steamboat Bill, Jr.) every time. Decent Films A+ with Superior artistic/entertainment value
