Storyline

Harry is down and out. A woman friend from a temperance union loans him a buck. He goes to a bar and orders a glass of milk to get a free sandwich. After he loses the greenback, the burly saloon keeper confiscates Harry's sandwich and tells him to sweep the floor to pay his tab. In the back room is a boxing ring where the owner stages fights. By happenstance, Harry ends up in the ring. Outside, the temperance union pickets the saloon. Between the beer and the boxing, can Harry stay on his feet and help his crusading friend?

Disappointing Langdon
25 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Hooks and Jabs (1933)

** (out of 4)

Harry Langdon, broke and poor, gets a dollar from a woman and goes into a bar to use it but finds himself in one fight after another. There aren't many, if any, laughs here due partly because everything we see here had been done countless times before and in much better films. There's not a single fresh idea to be found.

You can find this short on the Harry Langdon: Lost and Found Collection, which features four discs worth of shorts.

Apparently there are a couple different sources of this floating around but the Langdon set is complete.
