This was the first of the Thelma Todd shorts at Roach, yet it was offered as an entry in "The Boyfriends" series, even presented as one in the one sheet and promotional materials. The Boyfriends cast is present in bit parts, but outside of Mickey Daniels's trade mark laugh, none of them have any lines. See more »
This is a quite enjoyable 26 minutes, the first of the Thelma and ZaSu series.Jerry Mandy as the doctor is very funny and almost a clone of Jimmy Durante.Also present for Laurel&Hardy fans are Harry Bernard and Charlie Hall as waiters and Dorothy Granger as the leading Night Club dancer.The cigarette girl in the nightclub is Mary Kornman who is often mistaken for a different unidentified actress who appears briefly in the Thelma/ZaSu shorts Maids a la Mode,Alum and Eve and also as a bridesmaid in L&Hs Me and my pal.The nightclub manager is Maurice Black who appears in Bonnie Scotland.Even without the L&H connection this is well worth seeing.
