Storyline

Charlie has just married; he loves his wife, but he's plagued by her sister, Celeste, and Celeste's dog, Fifi, who live with them. Celeste has no job, encamps in the bathroom, and generally sours the mood. On Monday morning, after a series of mishaps, Charlie's in Dutch with his boss for arriving late, so, to make good, he volunteers Celeste to escort an important client that evening. After a few more mix-ups, the boss, his fiancée, the client, Celeste, Charlie, and his wife go to a nightclub. A mustard plaster, plenty of booze, a bunch of balloons, and an engagement ring figure in the climax. Will anyone escape with dignity intact? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Chases of Pimple St. (1934)

*** (out of 4)

Charley Chase comedy has him play a tormented husband who's married to a lovely wife. The only problem is that the wife's sister lives with them and refuses to move out. I'm actually a pretty big fan of Chase's silent shorts and find them more entertaining and funny that those of Harold Lloyd. I had heard his sound shorts weren't as good but I find them just as funny. There are countless gags in this film including a wonderful sequence where Chase must get ready downstairs because his sister in law is in the bathroom. The film starts off with a stupid musical number but gets better after that.
