decent though not particularly outstanding
16 April 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This Charlie Chase short was fun to watch, but not particularly outstanding compared to his other films. Part of this might just be because the plot is so odd. Charlie's extended family is in a fix and they need $10,000, so Charlie reluctantly agrees to to get the money by marrying a rich and significantly older widow. The problem is that this scenario just isn't funny and his switching from ardent suitor to creeped out guy during the course of the film isn't terribly well done. And, the gags thrown in aren't good enough to help overcome the plot. About the only interesting this is that you get to see Oliver Hardy in a supporting role before he later teamed up with Stan Laurel. See it if you'd like, but Chase certainly did better films.
