Kino Lorber is proud to present two uproarious silent comedies from Universal Pictures and director Harry A. Pollard. Oh, Doctor! (1925) stars Reginald Denny (Rebecca) as Rufus, a frail hypochondriac deeply in debt. He promises to repay it with the fortune he is due to inherit in three years. To ensure his health, the loan sharks hire a nurse, Dolores Hicks (Mary Astor, The Maltese Falcon), to take care of him. But when Rufus learns that the fetching Dolores prefers courageous men, he throws himself into a series of dangerous stunts that give his creditors a coronary. Poker Faces (1926) is a madcap farce in which henpecked husband Edward Everett Horton is desperately trying to close a contract to please his boss. When his wife (Laura La Plante) is unable to attend an all-important business dinner he hires a woman to play her. But she turns out to be married to an insanely jealous boxer!
