"The Hansom Cabman" (1924) starring Harry Langdon and Marceline Day

"The Hansom Cabman" is a nice Mack Sennett short comedy, directed by Harry Edwards and starring Harry Langdon and a charming 16 year young Marceline Day, a star of Silent Hall of Fame.

Harry wakes up with a bad hangover from the night before.  It turns out that today he supposed to get married, but when his fiancée Marceline Day calls him on the phone,  he can't pull himself together and goes back to bed.  He is in for a rude awakening, however, as an unfamiliar woman shows up in his bedroom and declares that she is his wife.  His butler confirms that they got married the night before.

The film enjoys a very "hansom" 7.8 rating in IMDB.

Silent Hall of Fame is the only place where we actively work to bring back from oblivion the names and legacy of formerly illustrious silent movie stars, which have made a major contribution to the industry and the world but do not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

We also fight for your right, the right of the public, to see silent masterpieces that have been kept in hidden vaults for far too long. Our website streams for free one such masterpiece that has not been seen in 85 years and is not available anywhere else.
