Summary Silent films highlighting the work of comedian Harry Langdon, including three of his best feature films. In The strong man, a childlike Belgian soldier seeks out the blind girl who wrote to him during the war, but through various mishaps becomes the assistant of a circus strong man. In Tramp Tramp Tramp, Harry enters a cross-contry foot race and encounters a chain gang, falls off a cliff, and is caught in a cyclone. In Long Pants, a young man is given his first long trousers and immediately smitten with a hard-boiled drug-smuggling femme fatal.
