About the Author

James L. Neibaur is a film historian and educator who has written several books on film, including The Fall of Buster Keaton (2010) and Early Charlie Chaplin (2011), both published by Scarecrow Press.


Neibaur's workman-like study concentrates on the silents (most of which are available on DVD), discussing them in the order they were made...so we can "better appreciate the work of a comedian who dared to be different... to take chances, and to retain his artistic vision without regard for commercial success." He provides brief details of the comic's life, and an overview of his "hit-and-miss" talkies. * Examiner *
[The book does] an excellent job of charting the progression of the film comics' unique style. The Silent Films of Harry Langdon (1923-1928) provides an opportunity for fans of silent comedy cinema to learn more. * Standard-Examiner *
