"Working Their Way Through College"
28 July 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Having no luck selling magazine subscriptions to housewives door to door, the girls (Thelma Todd and Zasu Pitts) decide to invade City Hall to try their luck selling to the men. Thelma is soon using "a little personality", as she puts it, to sell subscriptions - showing off her leg to get them into offices.

This film is mildly funny, not one of their best shorts, but still worth seeing. It features a number of standard slapstick gags including slips on banana peels, office ink spills, and the old "can't get through the revolving door" gag. The short is boosted up by the use of lively stock Roach Studio background music throughout the film and a ton of chemistry between Thelma Todd and Zasu Pitts, who really seem to be having fun with this. They actually seem to spend the majority of this short falling down on top of a variety of male characters with their legs flailing about in the air - for those interested in seeing lots of shots of Thelma Todd's legs, this would be the short to see. A bit of slapstick fun.
