What would the Vanderbilts say?, 28 June 2007
Author: boblipton from New York City

Muriel Evans has decided to defy family convention and take part in a beauty contest in Oceanside and her parents have hired "Fearless" who turns out to be timid Charley Chase to find her and stop her.

This is one of Charley's better sound shorts in which Thelma Todd does not appear. It's strengthened by some nice location shooting in Oceanside, California, some nice supporting physical comedy by Heinie Conklin and most of all, by leading lady, Muriel Evans, who looks to be having a lot of fun -- her reaction shots to Charley's gag with the asparagus are priceless. The entire thing is directed by Charley's brother, James Parrott and it looks to have been a very enjoyable shoot for everyone.
