                 ————————————————————————————————————

Max hat eines schönen Tages ein Variété besucht und einen Ringkampf mit angesehen. Begeistert von diesem modernen Sport träumt er nur noch davon. Endlich fordert er seinen Freund Grehan heraus und der Kampf beginnt, ein etwas sonderbarer Kampf, da die Gegner auf Rollschuhen laufen, was dem Sport einen eigenartigen Anstrich verleiht. Bei dem 20. Gang ist Max Sieger - die Zuschauer haben sich halbtot lachen können. (Der deutsche Lichtbildtheater-Besitzer, 20.10.1910)

This is another picture that the spectator can tell with certainty just about what will happen; men with fevers on the brain are of such common occurrence in picture. Max goes to a prize fight and gets the boxing fever. It ends with a match on roller skates. Max certainly brings a grace and refinement to these parts that no one else seems capable of, but he is remembered as being very much more delightful in other parts. (The New York Dramatic Mirror, Feb. 15, 1911)

Max assiste à un match de boxe et devient féru de ce sport. Il achète un punching-ball qu’il fixe au lustre de sa salle à manger. Mais au second coup de poing, le lustre s’écroule sur le plancher! Max n’en continue pas moins avec zèle son entraînement et devient un boxeur de première classe. Peu de temps après, ayant trop bu de champagne, il provoque son ami Gréhan en duel avec des gants. Le duel a lieu, les deux combattants ayant chaussé des patins à roulettes. Gréhan est jeté bas et Max est applaudi vigoureusement. (Henri Bousquet, Catalogue Pathé des années 1896 à 1914, Bures-sur-Yvette, Editions Henri Bousquet, 1994-2004)

Weitere Filmbeschreibungen/Kritiken:

 

Max goes to see a boxing match, and becomes an enthusiast forthwith. He buys a punching ball and fixes it to the chandelier. Unluckily, the house in which he lives is only a jerry-built one, and the second blow brings the chandelier to the ground. Max zealously practices, and in the end he becomes a first-class boxer. After having too freely drunk of the champagne cup, he issues a challenge to his friend Grehan to settle a difference of opinion with the gloves. The challenge is accepted, and the two friends, mounted on roller skates, pummel and punch each other with comic solemnity. Finally, Grehan gets a knock-out blow, and is declared the loser, whilst Max is vigorously applauded. (The Bioscope, Sept. 29th 1910)

                  —————————————————————

Max attends a boxing bout and comes home very enthusiastic about the sport. On his way home he purchases a punching bag, and attaching it to the chandelier, proceeds to break up housekeeping. However, he finally becomes proficient, and one fine night, when Max has looked too long upon the wine when it is red, he challenges his friend to a pugilistic encounter. His friend accepts, and there in the restaurant they put on the gloves, and for about twenty rounds belabor each other unmercifully. Great comedy stuff is introduced, because the two men both wear roller skates during the entire stunt. (The Film Index, Feb. 11, 1911; Moving Picture World, Feb. 11, 1911; The Billboard, Feb. 11, 1911)

                  —————————————————————

A subject similar in character to the one on the same reel, but then Max is Max. He can make anything go. And he stamps everything so indelibly with his own individuality that it appears novel. The end is a whirlwind of fun burlesque raised to the nth power.(The Nickelodeon, Feb. 18, 1911)

                  —————————————————————

The marvellous Max goes to a fight and determines to be a boxer. His own fun is shown as he practices. But the big hit is when he and a friend box in a café on roller skates. This is one long scream. (Moving Picture News, Feb. 25, 1911)

                  —————————————————————

A good deal of fun could be developed from Max's enthusiasm for boxing, but when the producer puts the two people on roller skates, something which no boxer would ever attempt, the fun disappears and mere silliness appears in its place. Nothing else need be said of this film. (Moving Picture World, Feb. 18, 1911)
