BeschreibungMalcolm St. Clair was a master director of sophisticated silent comedy. This book traces his career, beginning with his start as a Mack Sennett Keystone Kop.
PortraitRuth Dwyer (Ph.D., film studies/drama, University of Toronto) has taught film studies at McMaster University in Hamilton ON, but is now a full-time writer and filmmaker, writing and producing educational videos for children about art and architecture.
PressestimmenDwyer...has done a fine job of researching this first study of St. Clair, interviewing his colleagues and studying his surviving film. American Cinematographer The book is invaluable to researchers not only for a well-documented account of a "secondary" Hollywood figure...but also for insights into the people with whom he worked and the studio goings-on therein. The Silent Film Monthly There are half-a-dozen books on Lubitsch, and doubtless there'll be more. But Mal, bless his heart, was our own native Lubitsch and deserved his own book. Luckily, now he has one-and it's definitive. -- From the Foreword by William K. Everson
