Max Takes Tonics (1911)

Just found this on archive.org and thought I'd share. On average, Max Linder's work holds up remarkably well nearly a century later.

Never thought Max was funny. To me comedy strts when Chaplin shows up in 1914.

Max Linder was not only a master of physical comedy (creating lots of gags later imitated by almost everybody else) but also a great director in the "primitive mode of representation". Almost every scene is done in only one long shot but every bit of the frame is fully utilized with very studied actors' movement and creating different spaces within the frame.
