The Bangville Police (film #4 in the Silent section of Movieflix (www.movieflix.com)). [Category: Early Film & TV]

Mabel Normand thinks she hears burglars in the barn, so she panics and calls the Bangville Police, a rustic version of Keystone's finest. While they are bungling their way to her she informs a neighbor of the situation and baracades herself in the house. It all turns out to be a misunderstanding, of course, but it allows lots of silly antics to ensue. Unfortunately, this is one of Keystone's weaker efforts. A 1913 Keystone film.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.
