Trivia

The majority of the cast and crew from the film left Ensenada, Mexico, aboard the SS Emma Alexander on July 24, 1932, and arrived in Los Angeles, California, the same day, according to the ship's List of United States citizens. The ship's manifest lists them as "Movie Company" and contains 42 members of the cast and crew already identified as working on Hypnotized, including Mack Sennett, Hattie McDaniel, Marjorie Beebe, Wallace Ford, Spec O'Donnell and many others. Eleven persons are listed on the ship's papers who were with the cast/crew, but who have not yet been identified as having worked on the film. See more »

Mack Sennett's Crime Comedy
9 September 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Wallace Ford stars as Bill Bogard, a circus worker who wins a 150,000 Pound sweepstakes prize. He travels via ship to England to retrieve his winnings. Professor Limberly (Ernest Torrence), a hypnotist who is working on the cruise ship, gets wind of Bill's good luck. He manages to hypnotize Bill and get the ticket. Bill comes out of his mindless state to learn that the Professor has jumped ship, supposedly committing suicide. But Bill, with the help of a friend, manages to expose the disguised Professor and regain possession of his sweepstakes ticket.

An even balance of mystery and mirth, not nearly as bad as it's reputation.
