The major Vaudeville and Broadway star like Frank Fay only has 16 credits on IMDb. So, if you want to see this famous guy in a film, this is one of your only chances to see him in a leading role. However, I wasn't particularly impressed...and much of it may have to do with the story...which was also from Fay.
The story is about a guy running for mayor. When he (Fay) makes speeches, they are unintelligible gibberish but eventually he gets the upper hand by bugging the mayor's office and getting the dirt. There's more to the story than that...but none of it really seemed interesting--especially the attempt at pathos at the end. This didn't work because the audience wasn't connected to Fay's character. He wasn't necessarily that nice a guy and his sad ending just didn't resonate.
Overall, a film that is watchable but nothing more. It was very low energy and curiously uninvolving. I think a score of 4 is fair.
