Automobiles were novelties for many folks at the beginning of the 20th century, so movie audiences were thrilled by all the wild antics of outrageous drivers and passengerscareening down the road in cars, trucks, paddy wagons and fire engines.This collection showcases early Hollywood silent gems by masters of their craft. Mack Sennett (creator of the Keystone Kops style of comedy) and his rival Hal Roach (who laterbrought Laurel & Hardy and the Our Gang series to the screen) produced the first three shorts presented here.
