The Political Animal
26 December 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Bobby Clark and Paul McCullough made up one of the crazy comedy teams of the 1930s, at least until McCullough died in 1936 and Clark went on to a long career on Broadway. To the modern eye, their Pre-Code shorts border on burlesque and this one, set in a hotel during a political convention during which they frame rival candidate James Finlayson is no exception. Clark mostly stands aside, making wise cracks and McCullough is his put-upon stooge.

There is one lovely little sequence in which seemingly dozens of strangers wander through their hotel, including a couple of gun men and a woman looking for a bath -- "We've only been here a few weeks" explains Clark. It's funny and should amuse you, but it's too chaotic for my taste.
