I saw this short for the first time on TCM and have watched it many times since. Thelma Todd and Zasu Pitts are hilarious as a team of goofy gals trying to get away from speeding by pretending Zasu is ill and needs to go to the hospital. The entanglement of bodies at the hospital scenes are a hoot if not a bit erotic for the time. Note stunts such as the blanket over the crouches acting as a rolling bed was duplicated by the Three Stooges. Hal Roach at his best...a must see for fans of early 1930's shorts. I read Thelma Todd's bio here on IMDb and was saddened to hear of her early and intimely death. I look for ward to seeing her in more shorts and features. I understand she played in a lot of the Marx Brother's films.
