Edward Everett Horton – Silent Comedian?
Edward Everett Horton is remembered today for his fussy on-screen character in Hollywood sound films such as Top Hat (1935).
While never thought of as a silent slapstick comedian, he actually was!
He had a substantial career in 1920s silent comedies, culminating in eight starring two-reelers – produced by no less than Harold Lloyd.
Undercrank Production’s new DVD Edward Everett Horton: 8 Silent Comedies presents the whole series.
