Storyline

Three party girls gather at Charlie's apartment; he's hosting a party for three councilmen from Rockaway in hopes of selling them some property. While the women powder their noses, the men arrive, but instead of the councilmen, it's three dour gentlemen from the trade association. Charlie tells the call girls to act refined, so one of them suggests a game of post office. Will the straight-laced men figure out these aren't a librarian, college administrator, and music student, and is Charlie's sale about to be washed away in a stream of seltzer?

Not a whole lot of plot here!
19 September 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The first thing I noticed about this Charley Chase short is that the sound was pretty poor. While the actors could be understood, their voices were very thin and showed that the film could have used further restoration. Plus, because there was no closed captioning, watching it was a tiny bit of a chore.

Charley is trying to sell some land, so he wants to make a great impression when these prospective buyers arrive by paying some 'good time girls' to spice up the meeting. However, at the last minute, there is a substitution and some prune-faced old men arrive instead. However, the old geezers aren't as stuffy they appeared and soon the party gets off to a wild start...and finish.

There really isn't any plot other than this--it's just a group of guys and gals whooping it up and getting drunk. Some of it's funny, but for the most part this film is essentially plot-less--making it one of Chase's weaker vehicles.
