The Adventures of Algy

The Adventures of Algy (Beaumont Smith, 1925) Beaumont Smith's Productions, wr. Beaumont Smith, dp Lacey Percival, Frank Stewart, Syd Taylor, Charles Barton; Claude Dampier (Algernon Allison), Bathie Stuart (Kiwi McGill), Eric Harrison; 6500 ft

Algy is a direct successor to the English 'silly ass' played by Claude Dampier in Hullo Marmaduke (1924). The film, most of which survives today, reveals a heavy reliance on titles to propel the insubstantial plot along, and frequently the images are little more than illustrations for the printed text. Pike & Cooper: 127.
