Nice Work if You Can Get It
19 November 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Although his early sound shorts are not among his best work, this Charley Chase short from 1930 is carried along not only by Charley being goofily in love, but by his co-star, June Marlowe, now best remembered from her work as June Crabtree, the teacher in the best of the early sound OUR GANG shorts. Here, in her natural brunette hair instead of the blonde wig from the other series, she is equally charming, playing herself.

They are ably assisted in the meet cute plot by longtime Sennett hand Dell Henderson as an escaped lunatic that Charley mistake for June's father -- she insists that she will not see Charley without her father's permission. Charley's comic takes as he tries to please her purported father as Henderson acts madder and madder is a typical piece of Chase zaniness.
