"It would appear that the makers of these DVDs were unaware that movie film needs a specific length of film leading to the sound decoder. Most of the audio is out of sync."
Splendid short comedies

"Extraordinary dry wit from the master. The Dentist and The Golf Specialist are great slapstick, must viewing for comedy lovers. The Fatal Glass of Beer is something a little different, however: a satirical morality play, at the climax of which Fields--one of entertainment's great drinkers--performs a droll and tuneless song about the perils of drink. There are few broad laughs in this short, the plot of which has something to do with the Yukon Gold Rush, but Fields here may have striven more to puzzle than to amuse."
Another display of comedy from one of the kings of comedy.

"The comedic mannerisms of the veteran comedian W.C. Fields, as he utilizes them in his comedy, are highly effective. Suffice to say that any person who enjoys' his films will find themselves in a state of almost continuous laughter. These films are good fun for everyone and are for those who delight in the solemn insanities of that king of comedians, Mr. W.C. Fields. He is wholly enjoyable, and this yarn give him ample opportunity to display his wares. If your a fan of W.C. you must add these films to your collection."
