  • Airily cynical about such things as friends cheating each other or indolent rich people being insensitive, predicated on the tenets that vanity is funny (the impoverished prince puts a chair atop a table, to approximate a throne, when receiving guests), extreme laziness is funny, and a group of people doing the same thing in perfect sync is funny. Always instructive to see how nonchalant these early films can be about plot; still a bit threadbare, though the final punchline makes up for a lot.
