The Good News and the Bad
23 July 2007 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Well, let's get the bad news out of the way first: this very early Charley Chase short -- co-starring Thelma Todd! --is missing its soundtrack.

Now for the good news: it doesn't need it! This is essentially a silent movie, and the gags are well-constructed, as you would expect in any Charley Chase movie. Thelma Todd is, as always, wonderful opposite Charley and you can see her almost breaking up a few times. She is also, much to my astonishment, a very good ballet dancer and the main gag of the short -- Charley being flown around stage like Peter Pan -- is strong enough to make the movie, even without the usual Chase touches.

So if the opportunity arises to see this Chase subject, even without its soundtrack, don't miss it -- or just about any Charley Chase short subject. And keep an eye out for those old Vitaphone disks.
