Slapstick, Too is a documentary film produced by Shanachie that follows the evolution of comedy on the silver screen, beginning with its vaudeville origins and the slapstick skills of comedic actors, including Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, Buster Keaton, the Marx Brothers, and W.C. Fields. Narrated by Eli Wallach, Slapstick, Too begins in the silent film era, where comedy relied heavily on physical comedy, exaggerated violence, and elastic facial expressions. In a nod to a generation of some of the greatest comedy routines ever, Wallach shares many of those antics in a compilation of the memorable while detailing what made the actors the best of the early comedy world with roots in vaudeville, a genre used as far back as the Middle Ages.
