Fred the Clown is fit as a fiddle and looking for love in this ode to silent cinema by an acclaimed cartoonist.

This nearly wordless romp from master cartoonist Roger Langridge is the author’s paean to the silent, slapstick comedies of the 1910s and ’20s, spun for a contemporary audience, starring his most popular character. It finds our hero Fred pitching the woo to a lovely equestrian.
