Crazy Like a Fox
21 April 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Dell Henderson's wife and daughter (the last played by Julie Bishop as she made the transition from child actor to ingénue) are off to Bermuda, leaving Dell with his mother-in-law. He objects to their abandonment and pretends to be crazy to forestall their leaving, when in walks Charley with their steamship tickets.

Dell was in a dozen of Charley's sound shorts -- he had directed Charley in one Sennett short in 1934 -- and frequently played crazy, leaving Charley to comic befuddlement. This one is clearly based on Charley's 1926 short, CRAZY LIKE A FOX and they get on like a comic house on fire. They sing a duet, they blow bubbles and if it's not one of Charley's best sound shorts, it's filled with Charley's usual fine comic bits.
