The goods on Finlayson
11 February 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I'm not quite sure why this Clark And McCullough short subject was entitled The Gay Nineties. This certainly did not take place in the 1890s although some people seem to be having one gay old time.

Bobby and Paul are a pair of political operatives, the sharper one of course being Clark. They get called in by candidate John Sheehan who has had a long running feud with rival James Finlayson who has stolen a nomination he desperately wants. What to do, but set him up and Clark and McCullough are the guys to do it.

In about half this film McCullough is running around in women's evening apparel smoking a cigar and that in itself is funny. The two do manage to set Finlayson up and his reactions are almost as funny as Clark's witty remarks.

Witty and risqué, not as sharp as some of their shorts, but good enough for Clark and McCullough fans.
