“The Doll” is full of whimsy, broad comedy, and plenty of Mel Brooks-style wackiness, and was a major hit at the 2017 San Francisco Silent Film Festival. It was attacked by the church for its unflattering portrayal of a bunch of hedonistic monks, and maybe also for its plethora of visual and verbal double-entendres; but despite very European sensibilities, it’s fine for an audience of all ages.
