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?

Decent But Not One of Chase's Best
19 September 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Whispering Whoopee (1930)

** (out of 4)

Decent, if not particularly funny, short has Chanley Chase hiring three "party girls" to entertain some young men he's trying to sell some property to. The girls are all ready until there's a knock at the door and Chase realizes that the men are actually elderly and wanting nothing but business. The plot to this short is actually very slim as there's not too much that goes on. We do get a few funny gags but overall I'd put this down as a lesser Chase film. As you'd expect he's certainly up to par as he certainly brings that charm and charisma that only he could. I found him to be very fast on his feet here and he certainly helped keep the film moving even when there weren't any laughs. Thelma Todd plays one of the girls and she's as charming as ever. Eddie Dunn gets a few good scenes as the butler and Tenen Holtz sticks out as one of the businessmen. What really hurts the film is the screenplay because it really doesn't have anything going for it. The joke is pretty one-note as the elderly men show up and Chase must pretend the girls have class. The best joke in the film is when Chase tells one of them to complement Todd who is suppose to be a art fan. What happens with the compliment was very funny as is another sequence where they get into a fight over a game of post office.
