Synopsis:
"Too Much Johnson" is an elaborate 1890s farce of mistaken identity. Cuckolded husband Dathis (Edgar Barrier) is on the tale of a man named Billings (Joseph Cotten), who has been having an affair with Dathis's wife (Arlene Francis). Billings flees by ship to Cuba, where now also hiding from his own wife (Ruth Ford) and mother-in-law (Mary Wickes), he adopts the identity of a plantation owner named Johnson, who is expecting a mail-order bride. Orson Welles plays a Keystone Kop.

Only suitable for silent film buffs or as a curiosity - Too Much Johnson review by Harry

Spoiler Alert
03/04/2017

We were disappointed that this did not include speech pages or frames such as we had seen when clips from old silents were shown on the TV.

Also, the action moved very fast, and it was impossible to work out who was who and the developing plot.
