Little-known gem
16 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this film merely because of the opportunity to see the Three Stooges in one of their early features. I was surprised (pleasantly) by their appearance, as they actually played real characters, pretty much, and not outrageous clowns. And although their former honcho Ted Healy is in the film, they don't really interact with him. But the true surprise was how wonderfully entertaining and brilliantly shot the whole thing is. Richard Boleslawsky and Ted Tatzleff, the cinematographer, created a visual sense to this film unmatched by anything I remember seeing from the period. And the pacing, both in cutting and in dialog, manages to be rapid-fire and eloquent at the same time. So much has been made about the development of deep-focus photography in the years following this film, it's often forgotten that short focus can be fabulous to look at as well. Inside the bus that provides much of the setting for this film, there is always a sense of constant life going on in the background even though the foreground faces are the only things in sharp focus. I loved the look of this movie. Faces are given immense importance, even when the character who owns the face is not so important to the plot. And even the minor characters have minutely detailed physical, facial, and emotional detail of expression, bringing each of them to vivid life, often in a few seconds or less. Technically, I think this movie represents an amazing accomplishment. The plot and the performances are neither unfamiliar nor astonishing, but the execution in virtually every department is smashing. I wish I'd known about this little gem years ago.
