    Default Shave video from 1900



    Description:

    Like G.A. Smith's earlier Old Man Drinking a Glass of Beer (1898), A Quick Shave and Brush-Up is a vehicle for the Brighton comedian Tom Green, whose various grimaces when shaving and grooming himself constitute the entertainment. It's also a record of a time when cut-throat razors were a standard part of a gentleman's toiletry kit.

    Speedy and he missed a few spots. Not sure what the real purpose of the flick was unless part of a bigger skit but it was kind of cool to watch.
    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.

    interesting video, but i have a feeling he was already cleaned shaved before he started the shave, like 10pups said looks like he missed a few spots.
    A man should only look in the mirror when he shaves.

    I don't think the razor was sharp. After shaving that fast and "wavy" I would have my lips and cheeks hanging in strips....

    I would say it was a rather quick shave, but thanks for sharing

    Sloppy shave, but fun to watch.


    Wow, hadn't realized that You Tube was that old!
