“The Little Pest” is an enjoyable little silent comedy starring Neely Edwards. In many ways, it’s like a Charley Chase short–and Neely looks a bit like him. The film begins with a newlywed couple getting a visit from her obnoxious family. They ask if they can leave their little boy with them for a while and they agree–not knowing that the child is a pest. Throughout the rest of the day, the boy destroys everything, is very rude and blames it all on his new uncle.
Directors: Jay Belasco, Scott Darling
