Max Linder : Be My Wife

Max Linder : Be My Wife

Slapstick 2022

Max Linder writes, directs and stars in the second of his three American films. He plays the role of ‘The Fiancé’ and is determined to woo his girlfriend Mary and make her his wife, but in typical Hollywood romance fashion, the soon-to-be aunt-in-law Agatha does not approve of Max and tries to set up Mary with another man. This love triangle comedy makes incredible use of visual and physical gags and perfectly showcases the French comic’s elegant yet chaotic performance.

This event is also available to watch live online and for up to seven days after. Access it and other fantastic Slapstick festival events with a Slapstick Online Pass or event ticket.

With live piano accompaniment by John Sweeney along with an pre-recorded introduction from silent film champion and Lobster Films co-founder Serge Bromberg.
