Malcolm ‘Big Boy’ Sebastian stars in this rare silent 2-reel comedy Helter Skelter (1929), with a new musical score by Ben Model. Sebastian starred in a successful series of kid comedies for Educational from 1925-1929. Of the 28 shorts made only a handful survive; this title was the 2nd-to-last in the series and was transferred from what may be the only extant print, a 16mm Kodascope.
