A Seat on the Trolley
23 July 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Another of the Mr. & Mrs. Sidney Drew movies, in which they take a small situational comedy and play it with great charm. In this, Mr. Drew is tired of having to give up his seat on the trolley to women with squalling brats, and so he buys a doll and passes it off as his own baby. This sequence is a lot of fun as Mr. Drew alternates between acting as if the doll is a real baby, and treating it as a mere inert prop -- and bystanders react to his cavalier behavior.

Even the plot, which involves him trying to court Mrs. Drew -- they aren't married in the movie, you see -- when she believes him to be a married man with a baby -- is done in a realistic, convincing and funny way. It is a pity that a two-minute chunk of the film is bubbled out of existence -- but so many of the many fine comedies they did no longer exist. If this one is available to you, don't miss the opportunity to see it.
