French foreign legion
10 October 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

When we meet Charley, at the start of this wonderful short, he is in a Paris cafe, where he, and his three American buddies have come to have a drink. Charley, whose roving eye can't stay away from the gorgeous creature seated at another table, falls in love, at first sight. Trouble is, Ms. Evans, the blonde, couldn't care less about his attention, or so it seems.

Charley, who is distracted by a Parisian peddling naughty pictures, sells a packet to Charley for five dollars. The only problem is that the man manages to exchange the naughty pictures for decent ones without Charley ever realizing the change. When he goes back to the table and the bill comes, no one has money to pay. The only solution for them to avoid jail is for the men to enroll in the foreign legion!

Little prepares Charlie and his friends for the heat and the long marches through the desert. When Charlie spots a lovely oasis, he quickly leaves the regiment. Nothing prepares him for the fun, and the adventure that awaits him.

Hal Roach directed another great installment of the Charley Chase series. "Arabian Tights", a 1933 short film, is one of the funniest in the series thanks to the antics of Charley Chase, the star who is never dull, or boring. The other faces in the picture are also good, mainly Muriel Evans and Carlton Griffin, who plays the Sheik.

An enjoyable little film thanks to Hal Roach.
