A Hybrid
12 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the same way humans can be hybrids of different races, nationalities, and ethnic groups, dogs can also be a hybrid. Such is the case with the so-called dane in 'Dog Shy'.

I'm sorry, but Charley Chase does not do it for me. He may have developed Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy during the silent 20's, but as a self contained artiste, he's just not my cup of tea.
