Little Billy's Triumph
The first of several “Little Billy” films produced by Mack Sennett starring Billy Jacobs as a pint-sized hellion, LITTLE BILLY’S TRIUMPH pioneers the boisterous terrain later taken up by OUR GANG. A couple of older bullies steal Billy’s ice cream money. Enterprising rascals, they reinvest in sock puppets to sell tickets to the neighborhood kids. When Billy makes off with the box office, the chase is on. Keystone Kop Edgar Kennedy is on hand to enjoy the ice cream and dodge the rascals' barrage of rocks. The source materials here leave much to be desired but the relative rarity of the film trumps the necessity for a superior print.
