Overview

Synopsis

The Fraidy Cat
The Speed Kings
This is a prime example of the way Keystone mixed real life with comic mayhem. Real racecar drivers Teddy Tetzlaff and Earl Cooper play themselves in this short flick. Ford Sterling plays the father who wants his daughter (Mabel Normand) to marry Cooper. Normand, however, is a Tetzlaff fan. With this wispy idea in hand, director Wilfred Lucas took his cast and crew to an actual race in Santa Monica and had the players act out their roles in the audience. That spontaneity makes this one-reeler amusing, even today. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
