Since Sennett was semi-retired in the 1940's, it was good to see some of his old work make a come back so to speak with added sound and/or in compilations as Once Over Lightly. And because many haven't survived to the present day, it makes this example all the more precious! Great comedic scenes chosen, many with Turpin. The picture quality, music, narration and sound effects were also superb.
