MaxMakesATouchLIngenieuxAttentat&scale=2

Max and Mick, two brothers, have prepared for a merry spree and are actually stepping into their cab when it occurs to them they are penniless. Lots are drawn to see who shall beard stern father and make the necessary touch. The choice falls on Max who is far from successful in his mission, and he communicates the bad news to his brother Mick, who after thinking announces that he has an idea. One disguises as a thief and the other as a policeman. The thief holds up his parents as they leave the house, but the constable puts him to flight and receives a handsome reward. Their parents out of sight they discard their disguises, divide the reward and proceed out to enjoy themselves.

Max Linder’s Debut As a Cinematograph Artist 1910

Les Debuts au Max

Original title Les débuts de Max au Cinéma

Max Linder’s behavior when he applied for a job as a Pathé Frères moving picture actor, was such a good joke on him that it was decided to make a film of the event, and accordingly. Max was called upon to play the lead. He was serious for once in his life, when he offered his services, and to see Max serious is really amusing. The first film for which he posed was ‘”Mr. Henpeck,” and the rough deal he received, caused Max to forget that he was acting, and he turned suddenly upon one of his co-workers, whose duty it was to abuse him, and a rough and tumble fight ensued. The belligerents could not be parted until a stream of water was turned on them, and as soon as he could speak through anger and water, Max resigned, but reconsidered his decision later on, as his many admirers well know.
