Celeste, Betty's Sister


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 <>

A real delight
28 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a pity this little gem of a film is not available on DVD or tape. This is simply a joy to watch, from the opening song and nostalgic moon in the window of the Chase residence to the closing scenes at the night club, this is one great short.

I especially like the line "Why he's one of the finest men from Ashtabula, Ohio." That's where I live and when that finest man shows up drunk, it's absolute hoot for local audiences who enjoy a screening of this film at my home.

I am running a super 8mm Blackhawk sound print, but hope one day to have a 16mm print of this wonderful comedy. It's certainly the best he did in 1935 and eclipsed only by Pip from Pittsburgh, IMHO.
