The Eviction (film #14 on The Origins of Cinema, Volume 6: Rare Films (Video Yesteryear, 1997)). [Category: Early Film & TV]

The misadventures of a hapless landlord and some clueless cops as they attempt to evict a poor but aggressive family from their tenement. Uh-oh, watch out for the lady in the second floor window...d'oh!! It all ends in a huge melee, the cops fleeing in terror, and the landlord getting dumped in a water trough. Gee, being a property owner is harder than I thought. A 1904 British film.

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