User Reviews

A top Roach comedy!
24 November 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most charming Hal Roach comedy shorts ever made. Charley is set up on a blind date with Thelma. He, of course, believes that she will be unattractive and makes himself unkempt. Once he meets beautiful Thelma, he must attempt to clean himself up. Chase is at his best when he portrays a reasonable, single guy. The sight gags are fast and furious and Leroy Shield's music score adds to the charm of this short.
