Storyline

A crook, his moll, and his moll's dimwitted brother set about stealing a valuable jewel during a high-society party. They impersonate a trio of musicians hired to play for the affair, and when the real musicians show up, the gang must not only convince the party-goers that they can play the instruments, they must also persuade the party-goers that the real musicians are crooks out to steal the jewel.

Crazy Credits

Except for Charley Chase, whose name appears above the title, there is no cast list. Actors are introduced by intertitle cards just before they appear on the screen. The IMDb cast list therefore uses this "order of appearance" sequence. See more »

Hilarious Crime Spoof by Chase
30 September 2009 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Uneasy Three, The (1925)

*** (out of 4)

Often hysterical spoof of Lon Chaney's THE UNHOLY THREE has Charley Chase playing the mastermind of a dimwitted trio of thieves who plan on stealing a priceless jewel. The writing here isn't the greatest nor is the actual spoof the smartest but I don't think there's any doubt that this two-reeler has some of the biggest laughs of the silent era. Chase isn't overly known today, which is a real shame as he remains one of my favorites but it appears he has a cult following that gets bigger and bigger each passing year. There are three downright hilarious sequences here with the first coming with a young child playing with an electric piano cord. The next deals with the good guys being mistaken for the thieves and Chase having to help the detective (Fred Kelsey). The third one happens when Chase goes to buy the kid a balloon to keep him quiet and must try and hide it in his hat when he sees a cop coming. Each one of these scenes had tears flowing down my face from laughing and these scenes are what makes this a must see. Chase is his gem self and Bull Montana is wonderful as the dumb brother-in-law who even manages to look like Chaney in several scenes.
