There was no cast list per se. Some actors were credited by intertitles when they first appeared. Syd Chaplin was credited above the title and his full character name was supplied in an intertitle. See more »
The print of the film in the Turner library, and released on DVD through Warner Archive includes the original 1926 Vitaphone music score, with some sound effects and singing. At one point, Harold Goodwin whispers a word to Sydney Chaplin which is also faintly heard. See more »
Oh my goodness this is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. There are scenes I laughed so hard I thought I would burst. Funny throughout.... so sad Syd did not get the acclaim of his half brother...he deserved every bit of it... I was wary of a silent film about war... but I was not disappointed in the least... it is one of those movies one wishes could go on forever...it was so very good... at least if you like Chaplinesque type of slapstick others in the movie were also very funny... If you enjoy slapstick and comedy...if you love old silent films long lost...then you will really enjoy this movie. It is set in France during World War I when German was invading and controlling the country side...the Allies in this movie are the British and the comedy is without limits to nationality.
