Innocent Husbands (1925)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Charley Chase comedy has him playing a faithful husband who is constantly being accused of cheating by his jealous wife. One day she goes out and a drunk woman passes out in their apparently, which isn't good for Chase when the wife gets home. I've made it no secret that I find Chase to be the third best comedian of the silent era behind Chaplin and Keaton. I find most of his silents to be very entertaining works and I've even enjoyed a handful of his sound shorts at Columbia. This film here is certainly one of his better works and one I'd highly recommend to those new to the comedian. This film has a pretty good set up and a wonderful cast to really bring it home. Katherine Grant is wonderful as the wife, James Finlayson hilarious as a desk clerk and we've got Lucien Littlefield nearly stealing the film as a house detective. Chase too is very good in his role and you can't help but feel for the man. There is one great scene after another including a seance towards the end of the movie as well as a great scene where Chase is innocently walking home when he begins getting chased by a man.
