Westron Wynde, When Wilt Thou Not Blow?
1 September 2015 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Traveling salesman Joe Rock blows into town and is offered Lilian Biron as his wife if he can make the wind stop blowing. It's a good thing for him he's the producer, director and one of the screenwriters!

Most of the gags clearly involve running the camera backwards, but they are done in such an engaging fashion and the print, although battered by several generations of duplication, is all the more handsome for that -- a trick Joe picked up stooging for Larry Semon at Vitagraph. Given those two facts, this is a fine little comedy, one of the several that are available on Ben Model's latest compilation of ultra-rare silent shorts, ACCIDENTALLY PRESERVED 3. You get a nice Ben Model score to accompany it, too.
