Good bit of fun.

I enjoyed this movie, and I saw it in a theater complete with the Wurlitzer organ music, which was very well done. I just wanted to point out that they do indeed introduce the American President by name... I think it said "Taft", if I remember correctly. They introduce each character as they come into the storyline, along with the actor's name portraying the character as well. I'm not really a critical silent film viewer, I just really enjoy most of them. The stand-out for me was the child, who really does a great range of facial expressions, and to me they seemed very natural, not over the top. He looks like he had a blast making the film...
