Cast overview:
Charley Chase


Charlie gets word that a rich uncle has died, leaving him millions. Attorneys advise him to repair to a resort and avoid gold diggers. Once there, word spreads among the single women, and several try to ensnare him. At first he's gullible, then he cottons on, so when Thelma, a wealthy young woman, mistakes him for a fortune hunter, he dismisses her as well. A manager's error puts Charlie and Thelma in the same suite, and both think the other is prospecting. A dressing gown, radio, bare feet, pistol, keyhole, fountain pen, bedcovers, and a suspicious hotel detective join the mix-up. But wait, was the inheritance a mistake? Written by <>

Starts Off Very Good But Falls Towards the End

Dollar Dizzy (1930)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Charley Chase inherits a couple million dollars but he's warned to watch out for women who will want to use him for the money. He heads off to a resort for some R&R but runs into a woman (Thelma Todd) who is in his room. He thinks she's one of these money-grabbers but what he doesn't know is that she too is a millionaire. This is a pretty disappointing short as it starts off decent but the final seven or so minutes are just downright flat. I'm really not sure what happened but the movie just hits a wall and I simply quit laughing. I think some of the jokes were really annoying including one where Todd keeps going from one room to the next seeing a burglar and then screaming out for Charley. The very sequence is mildly entertaining but by that time things are already done. I did think the start of the movie contained some good laughs and this includes a rather long sequence where women keep pretending they're injured so that Charley will come save them. Another funny sequence is at the very start when Chase is first told he has the money. Both Chase and Todd are up to their usual good standards and we even get James Finlayson as a detective and Edgar Kennedy as one of the lawyers.
