Oh, Doctor! and Poker Faces: Two Comedies Directed by Harry A. Pollard
Directed by Harry A. Pollard
Kino Lorber is proud to present two uproarious silent comedies from Universal Pictures and director Harry A. Pollard. Oh, Doctor! (1925) stars Reginald Denny (Rebecca) as Rufus, a frail hypochondriac deeply in debt. He promises to repay it with the fortune he is due to inherit in three years. To ensure his health, the loan sharks hire a nurse, Dolores Hicks (Mary Astor, The Maltese Falcon), to take care of him. But when Rufus learns that the fetching Dolores prefers courageous men, he throws himself into a series of dangerous stunts that give his creditors a coronary. Poker Faces (1926) is a madcap farce in which henpecked husband Edward Everett Horton is desperately trying to close a contract to please his boss. When his wife (Laura La Plante) is unable to attend an all-important business dinner he hires a woman to play her. But she turns out to be married to an insanely jealous boxer!
