Pimple/Flivver - Fred Evans

Between 1912 an 1918, Fred Evans and his elder brother Joe, produced several series of short comedies, the most popular being the long-running series featuring the character Pimple, played by Fred himself. Both brothers wrote and directed, and Joe played other parts as required. This same character was renamed Flivver in the U.S.A. The films were usually comedic take-offs of other hit films of the day. Most of these early silent films are now lost.
