"Let's Get Married" is a likable comedy in which a couple of noteworthy actors are cast against type in their roles here. Ever see Richard Dix do comedy? I didn't believe it - despite the previous readers claim - but, guess what? he's funny! True, some of his predicaments in the film have been done many times before, but this is 1926 and were probably fresh to movie-going audiences. And Edna May Oliver pulling out all the stops to play slapstick? Who knew? And she was hilarious, one of the high spots in the film. Too bad she couldn't have been given more to do
she was on screen only a few minutes.
I thought the camera lingered too long on some of the situations, some of which suffered from extreme contrivance. A good comedy director should know when the joke is finished. Overall, it was great fun and is well worth the time, at only 70 min. I think it is important to note that nearly any movie should be seen in a theater in its original format of 35MM - bigger than life - to derive the most satisfaction. Too often we are content to watch our TV screens, and we do ourselves a great injustice. So do yourself a favor - get out and look for some film festivals. That's how I saw this one.
