College Chums1907

  • 4.0
Loosely based on Brandon Thomas' farce-comedy play CHARLEY'S AUNT, the last two-thirds of COLLEGE CHUMS may seem unique in that it shows one scene entirely in an establishing shot. In fact, the film was often screened with live actors behind the screen providing synchronous dialogue for the on-screen characters, a popular movie fad of the period. Edwin S. Porter's filmmaking talent is most evident in a mechanical trick scene.
