Storyline

A film about another American fad of the 30s. Small-town bumpkin Winfred Simpson is annoyed by the attention paid to his girl, Phyllis Jenkins, by a hotshot trick cyclist, Harry St. Clair, breezing through and impressing the locals on a personal appearance tour at the town theatre. When Phyliss turns Winfred down, he hits the road to become a success at the big 6-Day bike race. He meets Clinton Hemmings and they become partners as it is a two-man event, and get practice time for the race by getting jobs as bicycle messengers. Winfred, delivering a message to St. Clair at his hotel, mistakes a voice he hears in St. Clair's room as Phyllis, gets into a fight with him and hauled off to the pokey. The race starts without him, with Clinton riding alone. Finally getting released from jail, Winfred races on a "borrowed" bike to the "Velodrome" and enters the race just in time. An ether-saturated cloth, caught in his rear-wheel spokes, aids him more than a little as the other riders are ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Silly Fun from Joe E. Brown
19 June 2004 | by (Miami, FL) – See all my reviews

Hysterical Joe E. Brown plays a nearsighted buffoon in a series of pratfalls, sight gags filled with goofy characters participating in improbable events that might leave you giggling at all the silliness.

Just a look at Joe E's silly mugging will make you smile.

This is the type of small-town/countrified fun we came to know and love with the "Ma and Pa Kettle" series of films and in the 60's with such fare as the "Beverly Hillbillies", "Green Acres" and "Petticoat Junction".

The difference here is that the humor is clean, innocent, charming...and old-fashioned. Which is just "hunky-dory" with me!

Joe E. Brown's type of humor here may appear dated to some, but is has a place in the history of film comedy in reflecting the sober type of fun which has sadly fallen completely by the wayside in recent years.

It's not a classic...but worth a look for all its screwball moments.
