Comic Faces - Old Man Drinking a Glass of Beer
How many faces can one man pull while drinking one glass of beer? Far more than you might think
Comedy 1897 1 mins Silent
Comic actor Tom Green stars in this short 'facial' film directed by GA Smith - an opportunity to blow his face-pulling antics at larger-than-life size on the cinema screen. His theatre audiences wouldn't have been able to enjoy such a good look at his gurning features before, and here he is, impersonating the unmistakably messy effects of a booze-up. The drinker spots a friend in the pub and begins a conversation that veers from friendly to downright rude, all the while slurping his ale.
