Pimple's Uncle (1915) | BFI National Archive

British Film Institute

DESCRIZIONE

Fa parte degli Orphan Works del British Film Institute
Durata: 14 min.
This daft comedy pits the popular character Pimple (Fred Evans) against his cousin in a fight to secure an inheritance from an insane uncle (played by Fred's brother Joe). A suspicious letter contains some dubious advice on how Pimple should treat his uncle's insanity - including singing to him and playing practical jokes - with predictable but funny results. Fred Evans was the nation's favourite comedian until the rise of Chaplin - Fred's childhood friend. Together with his brother Joe| Fred made some 200 comedies before and during WWI| many of which starred the popular Pimple character| which he played himself.
